Picked this up a couple weeks ago. Only $60. It's almost totally bleached but I think it's going to turn into a nice one. I treated it for a week with cipro just in case but it never deflated. I've been feeding it a small piece of shrimp every few days. It has a faint blue/green at the tips. I'm hoping it will start coloring up over the next few weeks.

Store in Ocala called Aquatic Design. First time I have seen them with a mag. I managed to get a green/brown gig from them a while back too. Usually they mostly stock bubble tips and long tentacles though.

Not usually much for anemones. Worth checking out though. They get some cool stuff sometimes. There is also Ocala Reef that is worth checking out.

Hasn't picked up any color so I fed it a piece of shrimp with a tentacle from my other mag stuffed inside. Not sure if it was really needed but i figured it can't hurt. What looks like a small amount of color in the pic is really just from the LED lights. It's pretty pure white in person.

Seems to be recovering kind of oddly. Half seems to be picking up zooxanthellae and half has very little. One half also extends much more fully as well. I'm wondering if the bleached side may be getting too much light causing it to retract?
