Here is a pic of H. magnifica when I got it first week of Nov 2018 and a more recent pic taken in July. You can see how tiny it was. I did not treat it with antibiotics or put it thru quarantine.

Sorry, call me the skeptic but I have trouble believing they are the real colors and would like to see what those colors look like under a daylight spectrum without all of that blue light.

Also, how many times have we seen newly sourced anemones appear to have green tentacles due to the anemone being "shrunk" from stresses of transport, etc.?
