So anyways I bought even more carpet anemones, and these now have me stumped. I bought 2 maxi mini carpets, but one looks like a baby giant/haddoni? What do you guys think?
Ps, maxis do best in the sand right?

I think the larger anemone above is a baby Haddoni, while the smaller one is a Ricordia. Baby Haddoni stay on rock until they get larger. I guess it is too easy to get bury in the sand, and it can kill them if they get bury by several inches of sand.

Ah so it’s a mushroom? What a way to get scammed haha. Anyways, I assume baby anemone are sticky? So if it is a ricordia then I should be able to touch it bare handed and not feel anything I suppose

I agree with the baby haddoni. The other is more difficult. My immediate was mushroom, but then it kind of looks a bit like a baby malu. Probably a ric, but I would place it as yuma, not floridia.
Hmm the smaller one is really sticky, and ate the test feeder fish. Definitely not a mushroom

Hmm reminds me of majano... lol. But given that it ate a fish whole, probably not
