Default Stichodactyla gigantea anemone

I was just at Pisces and saw a gigantea anemone. But very sad that they won

Eh why Tapatalk cut all the words off? They had it as a display tank only and it was not for sale. Has anyone had any luck special ordering giganteas before? I am aware of bacterial infections and treatment with antibiotics.

I've had zero luck with special ordering giganteas from anywhere. It seems you have to be at the right place at the right time. They do sometimes pop up at places like Wais or Gold Aquariums though. It's like winning the lottery twice, once for being able to buy on in the first place, and then if it's healthy enough by the time it reaches your tank to get past the initial danger zone.

What colour is the one at Pisces?

Thanks Tony. On at Ocean Creation can special order them in. I was thinking of buy multiple. But then I also see the success rates in other forums which makes me cringe. The one at Pisces was brown but I think it bleached like all their other carpet anemones.

That's cool, if he's able to order them reliably that might be a way to go. (I think if it were me though I would start with one and see how it goes, you never really know about the species ID for sure until you see them in person).
