I do not believe that color is the determining factor. I don't see many aquacultured green anemones. Mostly I see Rose or Rainbow. Not to say that there aren't aquacultured greens, but they simply just aren't as common. Wild Bubble Tips are much more temperamental than aquacultured.

I had a tank raised Green BTA that did great for over a year until I added an RBTA to the same aquarium. The green came from a local guy who's tank was overrun with them, and the RBTA was a local split from a hobbyist tank as well...

They parked next to each other and the green one withered/wasted away fairly quickly. Not sure if it was coincidence or not, but it was fine and growing before I added the RBTA, and I had no other issues or parameter swings to explain it...

Was that before you put the anemone in the DT? What’s the purpose of treating anemones in antibiotics?
It was after , they looked good then started to decline in health while the other anemones doing great , read the sticky on cipro treatment for anemones. They are looking a lot better now and I’m hoping for full recovery

My first is a green one and is quite surprisingly doing well it seems to be a wild one. Cause my lfs doesn’t breed anemones. I got it thinking I scammed the lfs by buying the rainbow one due to it not having any green spots on it. One week later its covered in spots. So much for being a smart person ‍♂️

Seems like my experience matches most of others - greens tend to die out while red flourishes. I don’t know if I should blame my husbandry or if I should blame the anemones that I choose. Who knows.
It’s hard to say but I feel like wild caught green bubble tips don’t do well in a lot of peoples tanks
