I need a lemon drop in my life @Muttley000  wonder if they are as “difficult to keep as csb”

Finding one is more difficult than keeping them. They are particular as the favor colder temperatures.

If you’re Dayton area I could put you in touch with someone that has rbtas widows and other off shoots ?

Feel like I've seen several claims that lemon drops are actually "yellow phase" csbs, and have seen pics of 4 or so different colored clones all allegedly from the same mother all sitting right next to each other.  Weird stuff.

@Joe searched everywhere trying to find a true lemon drop and is convinced they aren't real.

Im more and more convinced that the colors are fluid, and other nearby anemones influence each others colors.

What’s this? Like they vi for the attention of a host with their colors?

I read an interesting thread or article about donating color to a bleached nem via snipping a tentacle off a healthy colored anemone and placing it into the bleached nem.  Interestingly even if the donation was from a different color nem once the bleached nem recovered it always came back to the original color reguardless of what color symbiotic algae was donated.  This was far from a scientific study but anectdotally interesting.  This would make the case for the nem to be able to control its color genetically or chemically.  Maybe changing conditions could cause a chemical change, or chemical warfare we know occurs between nems sometimes could trigger a color change??  Kind of reiterates how little we actually know about all this stuff!

This is interesting. I hope to find the time to dig deeper someday.
