corkscrew anemone - photo update and how big will it get?

Recommended Posts

Guys, I got the most beautiful corkscrew nem a few months ago, and pleased to say it seems to be very happy, even more pleased that it found a spot it likes at the back of my 65L nano tank and hasn't moved since.

It's stalk is about 7 inches long, and when it's fully opened it looks like 10 inches in diameter. It's massive. I have been feeding it whole lance fish every 4 or 5 days, with some mysis inbetween. It's closed mouth is easily one inch wide.

It's the most beautiful dark green with blue dots on it's tips, and spots and stripes on its tentacles - tentacles are bigger and fatter than my fingers. Currently my black and white clownfish is hosting in it, she is very busy rummaging around all day inspecting every tentacle. 

It's my favorite creature in the tank by far. 

I'm starting to think I can safely keep him in this tank until I get a bigger tank next year [definitely getting a bigger tank], as long as he stays happy and eating, and not too much bigger. Does anyone with LTA experience have any thoughts?

I only have a phone camera and the blue light tint I can't get rid of sorry, it looks a lot more bottle green IRL. The tips are neon blue/purple. He also has a bright bright red foot - red like a fire engine.

Actually I took a picture from above the light with the lid of the tank off, and you can see the blue tips now, and more of his natural color.

Is corkscrew the same thing as long tentacle? If so, it’s a very pretty green
