Looked like a small white anemonie
What was it?

That's likely what it was - somebody brought me a tiny BTA split, and it's kinda bleachy.

Any idea what color it should be?

Probably brown. He brought me other much larger clones and they were brown.

Thought it might have been a White Sebae . . . drool, drool

No, definitely not. Sebaes are usually quite large. I don't usually carry them - but I can get one if you're looking for one.

I know sebae's are normally quite large, figured if this was a small split, it might just work for me

No worries

I've not heard of Sebaes splitting in captivity.

Could I ask why you don't generally carry them? Just curious.

I don't carry them because they are more difficult to keep, get pretty large, and few species of clown will host in them.

Thanks Jenn.....

I was in the market for anem's this weekend. In hopes of my clowns hosting. I got three bubble tips. What other anem's are good hosters? (is hosters a word...lol)

I know its a crap shoot as to whether the clowns make a home in the anemone of not. I thought by giving a couple of options and variations, it may further encourage.

My No Bar Cinnamon beats the sand near my Bubble Coral and tries his best to nestle down into the coral.

The Maroon Clown set up housekeeping in some polyps. It was funny to watch him. He had two sets that were identical, but were not side by side. So, he swam back and forth "protecting" his houses all day. When the lights go out, the polyps close up and he does his best to get them to open back up for him. I've relocated his polyps closer to one another, the travel between his two homes was causing some aggression drama with passersby.
