The silver dots under your LTA are Glowing!
The dots are yellow and the lta is a little bit translucent so they pop at night lol I’m not sure what the dots are for but I’ve seen them grab onto stuff o_O

Ye initially when settling in the spot , the dots were able to expand out of the base and attach to surfaces like the foot, assuming to hold it in place I had no idea lol

They are called (verrucae). In some species they are adhesive in others they are not. They allow the anemone to lay out and capture more light in higher flow areas by attaching and anchoring the oral disk.

I used to do leather craft stuff, think furniture grade leather, a standard soda can over here is 330 ml, happens to be the same size as smaller "craft" beers come in, prototype holder, excuse the rough cuts, can't find my scalpel, if you want to cut this grade leather you need a scalpel sharp blade to not leave rough edges, my everyday beer can holder is about 10 years old, never made a second one as the time involved was ridiculous, I did ones to attach to things and a belt hanger one for if you are out and about, thinking of trying again but I have a limited amount of leather and no funds to buy new. rivets / eyelets I have loads and loads of different twines / lacing materials. might try again. :)
(The leather is offcuts from furniture leather so buying a random bag can buy you a lot of waste.)

I made my daughter a handbag (purse?) and a coin purse for when the ex took her to Tunisia, by the side of the pool it got splashed and the chlorine stained it, it was harlequin satin lined with all hand laced edges, she dumped it in a corner when she got back and didn't tell me, that was ten years ago, she now uses it daily again, more hours than you want to know about went in to that, best thing I ever made, churning out coin purses became tiresome just to try and make ends meet.

I'm sure it's something she loves, and will last forever!
