The Maxi-Mini Carpet Anemone, Stichodactyla tapetumi, is often described as possessing some of the most beautiful rainbow colors in the aquarium trade. They are easy to care for due to their small size (growing up to a max 6 inches), however, they possess a potent sting, so be careful. Their health can be judged by their 'stickiness' - the stickier the better. They thrive in tanks with strong lighting and strong waterflow as well as a thick sandy substrate. The Maxi-Mini Carpet Anemone should be fed daily a variety of carnivorous preparations. Overall, this is one of the best beginner anemones out there as it is easy to care for and incredibly beautiful. 

Beautiful specimen, a green Maxi-Mini Carpet Anemone. Acclimated quickly and roamed around a bit until he found a comfortable spot between rocks. Accepted pieces of raw shrimp immediately. Puzzling behavior after about a week. He stayed firmly attached to the rock but flopped over w/mouth gaping open. Didn't seem to bode well, but after reading experiences of others, this isn't so unusual. He remained sticky and responded to light (and lights out) so the advice was to let him be. Sure enough, he's starting to expand back to what he had initially been with some "flopping" and deflating in between. Anyway, regarding Saltwaterfish.com, he was bigger than I expected and the whole shipment was packaged well and shipped without issue.
