:) I know what you mean. I bought a small polyp from an LFS for my needs - hated to dissect it. I am not 100% sure on the exact species though. I did not take a photo before using it. It could have been Rhodactis sp.

Your wet mount shots of those nematocysts are so gorgeous I really won't be able to resist fixing and staining one of the smaller bud polyps now. Just have to figure out how to gently slice it off (number 11 scalpel blade on a stick with a little collecting pipetter or bag maybe) without hurting the main anemone. Gotta love our 60/1.2W objectives. Nothing like that collar for wet mounts.
