Does anyone know if aiptasia comes in any other color except that cruddy brownish yellow color? (I sound like I am shopping for a sweater, heh heh!) I have some on my macroalgae in my refugium that looks kinda like it, only its white. its got the longish stalk and everything. however, there are really small ones but they have short thick stalks. are those some other kind of harmless anemone, or are they all the horrid aiptasia?

sorry, I have no way of taking a decent up close pic.

I know that aptaisia come in diff. colors but you'll have to do a search with pics to make a match. I have a brown polyp that I was suspicous of and my test was to see how quickly it retracted when touched - never had aptaisia but I understand they move real quick when they have to.

Look in the pest archive, even with color variations aptasia are fairly distinct
