Nem ID Help

I got this anemone from a friend. It has a similar coloration to a lemon drop or Sunburst. Let me know what you think. It doesnít have purple tips, it just looks like that in the pics. Other two nems in the pics are a rainbow bta and a Sunburst for reference.

It seems to have rather long tentacles despite being only a "baby" size anemone, I would guess it is a Condy.

Itís definitely a bta. It was bubbled up when I got it. I believe this is the post from my LFS where my friend got it (I got the first split). Itís the middle one

It’s a BTA. All the names given are a marketing ploy.

Without knowing the lineage, you can only sell it for a fraction of what something like a CSB will sell for. The debate is out whether or not lemondrops actually exist, or if they're just morphed CSBs or similar strain. Yellow is definitely a desirable color though, and should fetch more than a rainbow.

Are you in any Facebook groups? I know of one in particular that could help you price it. The reality is that you can only charge what people are willing to pay. You can start at a price that you think is fair and go from there.

Could always put it on eBay and start the auction at your bottom price and hope I goes up. Can you get some better pics? Pics are definitely the most important factor if you are trying to get more than what a normal BTA will bring. Creative photos make a lot of people a lot of money on there. Just look at cornbreds ridiculous auction pics.
