I did get mini carpet from briguy31 a while back and when I got it it was only the size of a quarter. have not seen it since had to change around the tank about 6 months. the anemone in the pic is only about the size of a dime and there is about 4 of them in a cluster and this one a little off to the side. now are there mini maxi's that stay real small? anyone else have any ideas for the name of the zoa? thanks

there are regular minis that only get to about a half dollar size and the maxis get id say 4inches or so

I think the bottem one is a rock anemone. The little spikes on the tentacles make me think that. Mine are about the size of a half dollar. Maxi minis have less length to the outer rings of tentacles. Might be wrong. . .

I was thinking rock nem too~mine looked similar but different color~they grow like crazy and can be kept in the dark like forever~they actually breed or whatever nems do in the dark/caves/under rocks~if it is a rock nem leave it alone because the coloring in that one is beautiful~may make you a few dollars :)

Looks more like a paly of some sort to me

The zoa is a PPRPE, propagators purple rimmed people eater. There pretty cool and they tend to morph under different lighting conditions.

I think the name of the second zoa is purple sticky punch. let me know if this is close and what others think.

The paly looks like what I used to have. I called them Martian people eaters or milkyway people eaters. Just my two cents.
