    That looks like a dyed Saebae anemone, which also means that it won't keep that color and probably won't live very long.

    Yep, that's the reason. Anemones are pretty fragile, and they don't react well long term to being injected with chemicals to make them different colors.

    Oh wow. I didn't even know people dyed them. So how long should I expect it to make it?
