A 'Blue' Giant Carpet Anemone
The gorgeous 'Stichodactyla Gigantea' is known to host up to 7 different clown fish, here with the Hollywood star (Amphiprion percula) aka Nemo.
Its oral disc is deeply folded and can appear in a number of colors, rarely deep blue.
Its short, stubby tentacles are about 8 mm long and tapered. There are so many tentacles they give the anemone a shaggy "carpet" appearance, thus the name Carpet Anemone.
