This close-up of the tentacles of the common sea anemone, Condactylactus gigantea, displays the detail of the animals long and thick tentacles. The tips of these tentacles are purple, but sometimes the tips are also red, pink, lavender, green and white. The tentacles attach to a central tube-like body which is generally orange in color that in turn is attached to the reef surface under rocks or in reef crevices.
