    I'd like to add that S. gigantea is one of (if not the most--possibly more than H. magnifica) the most demanding anemone species available to hobbyists. They require more light and water flow than just about all other species. Even that doesn't guarantee survival.

    True.

    Nice anemone.

    nice! How much did THAT puppy run you? haha
    Also, I would agree that it is bleached, and the fact that it is mainly the disk that is lacking color, I also think that it's a POSSIBILITY that it might be dyed, with more of the teal color.
    Hopefully it does well.
    Good luck!

    Thanks everyone!
    I don't believe it is dyed..The pics I took are point and shoot I sux at the pics but I am no carpet expert so i do not know what this color morph is supposed to look like, the mouth is yellow and is closed here is a sight that has a better pic of wht mines looks like, I saw 2 at a Orlando store over the weekend but it was very over priced..then i saw this one at a local LFS for the right price..all three were the same color blue

    It's not dyed, but it is bleached. If it were dyed, more parts of it would be blue--like the disc itself, and not just the tentacles.

    Judging by their description on the site, even they think it is an S. gigantea.

    I'm confused... You bought it and think you'll most likely sell it???

    If it fully recovers, it should be a really nice anemone.

    Love your new coral....but really like your RBTA with Killa. How often do you feed your RBTA - looks fantastic.

    THAT is gorgeous! Definitely a good reason to upgrade to the 125! I *really* want a carpet nem, but I'm *really* afraid of them eating all my fish. I heard about someone in my local club having one eat some $200 or more fish, I forget what kind, but DANG, I'd be bummed!

    I feed the RBTA once a week, 2 frozen cubes of Prime Reef it is huge, i have to keep moving my powerhead so that when it fully inflates it doesn't get caught

    Yes the whole eating of the fish has me paranoid, the bleaching on my carpet seems to be getting better, it is regaining some darker pigmentation starting on the edges..i didn't know it was bleached or I would probablly never have bought it..never buy on a splurge kids..lesson learned
