Green w/yellow tip BTA

Just thought I would share a new purchase
Its not awesome, but I thought it was kind of different. We'll see how it turns out after it colors up a bit. I picked it up at a LFS.

This is a pic while it was still contracted to give a hint of the potential color.


Here is an overall pic. (I can't figure out how to keep my camera from making BTAs look washed out)

very nice, its a very unique piece. I am getting the feeling that perhaps the Green will take over the yellow tips. Intresting GBTA tho

My cybershot does the same thing Phender with my BTAs. The pictures never do complete justice.

Play with the white balance to get the color right. I am not a camera expert, but you can point most cameras in your tank and change the white balance setting and see the changes instantly on your screen. Learning how to set the white balance on my camera makes all my pictures better. By the way, nice anemone. I just got the brightest green BTS I have ever seen, and its got a bright red foot. It looked like a LTA in the bag, but once it came out it was easy to tell it was a bubble. I decided to buy it right then, I'll probably pick it up next week from the LFS.

Thats a good looking bta. My wife bought one just like that about a month or so ago because she felt bad for it. It didn't handle shipping to the LFS here to well, and after a week at the LFS, it still hadn't perked up. Wife was able to weasel a deal out of them because it didn't look good and since then it has almost doubled in size and is looking great.

looks like rose BTA in the first pic...are you sure that it is not a slightly bleached rose? i have seen some so called "orange" BTA's they turned out to be roses after a few months

It is slightly bleached but bleaching doesn't usually affect the rose pigments, just he brown zooxanthellae.

There really isn't any red pigment at all.
