Had this anemone for over a year 3 months ago it split and started to hide for 6 weeks Turned up my lights too high bleached a few things.

It finally came back to Health but one side of one of my anemones has bubble tips. Is this common I didn't know other anemones can form bubble tips besides bta

Has anyone heard of this people keep saying it's a bta but I have 3 bta. It doesn't look nothing like them and it stretches out much farther than any bta I ever had

This is of the one with the bubble and one without
Plus I have never seen a bta that color plus do you see how spread out it is. The anemone isn't roundish

While mags can and do split, it's not super common, but it is super common for a BTA to split, especially after newly introduced to tank, so couple that w/ the bubbled tents I'd say a good chance it really is a BTA, and yes some BTA's can look different even in the same tank.
I've had BTA specific tanks where some bubbled and the others were long and stringy, some went to stronger light and flow, some went away from it.

It would be nice to see more clear pics under more daylight type lighting showing the base and column for best ID, that is much better for a positive ID than tents alone.

100% BTA. Magnifica have blunt tipped tentacles, never a point and then bulbous, which is indicative of a BTA. Tentacle length is not a good indicator of species. BTAs can have extremely long tentacles.

look up to the pictures, you will see one where the anemone is sticking to the rock. bta simple do not do that. there whole base is always unattached to the rock please advise ?

they would spilt if they got bleached. anemones spilt when they are in trouble or dying. it gives them a better chance of survival. if this one didnt have a bubble on its tips would you think it was a bta. have anyone every seen a pinkish gray bubble tip with white tips before. i haven't in all my years in this hobby.

First, I'll answer your questions:

1. if bta are purple

YES. They're common.


2. if they stick to rock with its disk

Typically NO. My understanding is that they don't have verrucae.


3. if they can stretch there foot 6 inches

YES. I've seen some stretch longer than that. They look silly, but it happens.


Second, we've gone over this already...

http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2523081

Furthermore, generally speaking, BTA like to hide their foot. Magnifica do not. They spread their foot out like a fried egg on top of a flat rock.

To be completely honest with you... it does look like you have two different anemones. One is a BTA and the other is a magnifica. I don't think your nem hid and split. I think you may have purchased what you thought were BTAs on separately occasions where one was really a BTA and the other was actually a magnifica. I say this because their postures and appearance are completely different. The one in the rocks is 100% BTA. The one on the back wall is the suspect anemone that could be a magnifica. It looks a lot like the one that I used to have (photo in the thread I linked).

However, if you watched it split and you know that you only bought one nem , then by deduction they are both BTAs simply because one of them is CLEARLY, 100% without a doubt, a BTA (that's doing a good job pretending that it's a magnifica).

Lol. Like your response. I didn't watch them spilt. But I do know I didn't buy a bta

Purple very common. I never seen a purple bta with a white mouth and white tips. Please show me a picture.
Also you see from the picture the anemones sticking to the rock
So bubbles means 100 precent bubble tip but the fact it sticks to the rock unlike a bubble tip means it's still a bubble tip

So if I take out the rock what can I look for to see if it's a bta or ritteri I know my bta will strink down almost nothing. With ritteri do that too. I only moved it once out if water. Don't remember if it did that

Judging by the face and what I can see around the mouth it's definitely a BTA. It sounds like you are upset by this news but obviously you like the anemone so just accept that it's a BTA and care for it. I have 2 mags this color and the faces around the mouth have no white in them. Yours appear to have the typical white lines around the mouth which is a good indication of BTA. Some BTA have tentacles longer than magnifica, so as stated in other posts, the absence of bulbs and long tentacle length does not make it a ritteri/ magnifica. You bought a BTA, so either the wrong item was shipped to you or it was mislabeled/ misidentified in LFS, it happens. Many post on here asking what in the world kind of anemone they have, some are very similar to other species and you have to pay close attention to detail. Good luck and at least you got a free anemone already out of the deal.

Another difference between mags and BTA is the ridge of the oral disc and tentacles. There is a clear ridge on BTAs where the tentacles stop, mags do not have this ridge. You can clearly see the difference in the pic you posted above in post 9 compared to this one below

Look at the picture I quoted from post 9, at the bottom of the anemone near the rock you can see like a gap from where the tentacles stop growing and the end of the oral disc to foot, its almost like a round edge. This round edge does not exist on a mag the tentacles grow right up to the end of the disc on a mag as seen on the picture I posted of my mag.

I really don't see the difference. The anemone you shows disk is completely off the rock. Why the picture shows my anemone disk complete glued to the rock. Bta don't glue themselves to rocks on the disk.

If the anemone didn't have a bubble tip and you saw it would you say it was a bta.

Typically NO. My understanding is that they don't have verrucae.


3. if they can stretch there foot 6 inches

YES. I've seen some stretch longer than that. They look silly, but it happens.

To be completely honest with you... it does look like you have two different anemones. One is a BTA and the other is a magnifica. I don't think your nem hid and split. I think you may have purchased what you thought were BTAs on separately occasions where one was really a BTA and the other was actually a magnifica. I say this because their postures and appearance are completely different. The one in the rocks is 100% BTA. The one on the back wall is the suspect anemone that could be a magnifica.

Compare that pic with mine of my mag, they are completely different. Your anemone is a BTA, you can clearly see the difference in the transition from column to disc and tentacles along with the tapered tentacles. As for the foot, they protect their foot, so it probably felt comfortable there the way it was laying.

This will be the last post I make on this thread as now you're just looking for some one to say what you want and you have kind of started to dumped on what others have posted that is correct thinking that you have more knowledge then them.

Your BTA grips the rock with his disk exactly like mine does when he's reaching up toward the overflow stretching his column at least 12 inches in an elongated, not round, pose.

Well let's see, people who have kept these particular anemones for more than 20+ years. I think that qualifies them as experts.

What do you not understand bro. Is ur brain that tiny. You have a BTA you idiot. Now get over it. Anybody with a little experience that sees that anemone's tapered tents with slight bulbs on the end can easily identify it.

This is noob stuff.

Your anemone lacks the proper Verrucae of a Magnifica.

Here's what a real Mag looks like.

No, you are looking for someone to agree with you. Since that isn't going to happen, I am closing this.
