How does it vary from being a rainbow?

I have 2 types of rainbows and what I think is an AZ sunburst I just got from someone N. of Seattle. It looks almost identical to the Seattle sunburst I had, only more bubbled like the one in this post. The Seattle sunburst I had never bubbled its tips, which was ok. I made the mistake of putting the Seattle sunburst in with the RBTAs and the RBTAs killed it. The main difference is that the sunburst anemones are dark cherry red under the orange "speckles", whereas the RBTAs are just green. But its hard to tell if they are not fully inflated and under good lighting. Even then you have to be close to appreciate it. I have seen pictures of the CO sunburst and I think its one of the few that are noticeably different than other sunbursts.

Looks very similar to my no name anemone. Any difference?

You really should give your nems names. Bob will do if you cant think of anything. Your nem is nice whatever it is. Here is a picture for comparison. Top to bottom: RBTA, Seattle sunburst, black widow. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! They fought to the death. All 5 RBTAs survived, but the black widow and Seattle sunburst died.

Here's a comparison of the Seattle sunburst and AZ sunburst (I'm not positive it's AZ, I think the seller said it is). I no longer have the Seattle one, but I wish I did. It was unique enough. It had longer, more whimsical tentacles. (yes, whimsical is a scientific term used by marine biologists)
