Edit: Sorry for the typo in the headline, Sherman not Herman is what I'm after.

This nem is a foot across and for sale for $250 from So Cal Aquafarms. They are calling it a rose, but looks kind of like a BW minus the webbing. I have a BW, but I'm hoping to find a true deep red rose/green or true Sherman, since most "red roses" turn out being orange. They also have ones labeled as red rose. Its the second picture. What are the odds I just end up with another plain orange rainbow BTA? That has happened to me before.

I have yet to find a true red rose or Sherman locally or see one in person, but I'm up to my elbows in rainbows lol.

The first picture looks like a true Sherman

Thanks. I was hoping for that. I wonder why they are calling it a rose. Do you think its worth the price? I don't need a 1 ft anemone, but I can make room for it. Maybe it will split and I can sell half. What about the second one. Trick photography, or do you think I will receive a nice cherry red and green nem?

I would ask for pics in white light without filters/lenses. Those look like a Kardashian photo.

I always suspect that on ebay, but for the first one, there is a less red nem that looks like a regular rainbow rose behind it which contrasts it. I'll ask for white light photos.

Like @Jekyl said I would definitely ask for pics in white. And it’s a pretty good price for a 1’ nem
As for the rainbows I doubt they look like that in person mostly they use edited pictures

Thanks. Do cherry red BTAs like the second picture even exist without photo editing? That's probably the better question.
