Mini Carpet Anemones

Recommended Posts

I resently purchased this mini from kegs

I am not disapointed but they seem to be over rated. This one is very small. How big can I expect it to get?

 

I know the reason they have such a cault following is the fact they are sooo hard to get, but if I could find more and get a group of them going I would be more excited about them.

 

Truth is I puchased this Rock Flower nem from Ken and find may self admiring it over my mini.

I need an ID on these little carpet nems if anyone has one. I picked them up today, beautiful little guys! Very small, maybe 1/4" to 3/4" (I have 5 of them). Great deal, got 5 for $5.00! :)

I came across one several months ago and picked it up, should have picked up a couple more. I keep hoping to stumble across some more color variations at some point thinking a dozen or more are needed to make a nice spread.

Here are mine. I would be interested in color variations if anyone wants to trade. I also want a maxi as well.

Hey guys,

 

Has anyone figured out an ID on these little guys? They are still incredibly tiny, largest being 1/2" but they have spread quite a bit. They can be found all over the tank now. They don't seem to bother any corals, and I have actually seen them amongst my zoas. The zoas don't retract, or close partially. They don't seem to mind the nems at all.

 

Any info would be awesome!

they're mini mini carpets, of the Gary M. "watermelon" variety. Most mini carpet info you'll find is talking about that variety.
