Could be copy cats, market saturation, or a million other reasons.

One should still be very cautious when dealing with lower priced "named", infrequently available, or delicate clowns.

When most folks in the business can't keep snowflake, picasso, or even percula/ocellaris straight, be wary of clown "deals". Very wary.

The anemone on the right is a Condylactis species.

You'll find lots of things written out there about anemones. As a rule, they are tough to maintain in captivity.

IME, yes they don't seem to build up much of a tolerance for amyloo or brook.

Many of the "uniques" are not rare or uncommon, but disease prone. I would recommend selecting your...

Nope, E. quad(BTA).

BTAs have a fairly mild sting and clams seem to be quite tolerant of them in my tanks as well.

pH is not likely the issue. The mix of critters, dosing, diet, temperatures, etc., will need to be reviewed.

Anemones prefer a stable pH.

IME they can tolerate a pH in the 7.9 range, but it would be an error to assume they prefer an unnatural range. I would move the nano back up to 8.2+ if you can keep...

It has characteristics of majano, if you want to be sure, remove the rock it is on and grow it out in isolation.

Good luck.

Re: Bubble Tip Anemone Placement

The only way a BTA is the size of a quarter is if it was starved to absorption or divided by unnatural means.

Most "BTAs" that size are actually Majano Anemones.

I'd welcome hundreds of threads like this one over the former.

More then likely you have an Atlantic Anemone, likely Condylactis species. It is rare for a Maroon or a Clark's clown to reject a BTA.

Post a picture to see about an anemone ID.

It really depends on the species, some are quite tolerant of short term temperature drops. Condylactis, S. Helianthus, and E. quads(BTA) to say the least.
