    If it's a macrodactyla then it will get pretty large. Just keep an eye on it and if it eats any more tank mates rehome it. It's a beautiful nem though.

    I just spotted its foot, and though i was unable to determine the color, i was able to see it has burrowed it in the sand bed... if im not mistaken this is both a sebae and macrodactyla trait though...

    It's not the color you need to look at as a long tentacle has a red foot also. Look for white spots around the bottom of the disc and foot.

    P.s. Another common name for the LTA is the Red Base Anemone.☺

    hmmm it could be but the tentacles dont seem exactly like the magnifica (monster of an anemone btw). really thus far what seem to be the closest thing to it is the doreensis. but again I guess its hard to tell since its still smallish
