Other Anemones in the Wild and Hobby:

Family Actiniidae: 

Condylactis species. Though most of these come to use from the tropical West Atlantic as inexpensive "Condys", there are Indo-Pacific species. This one in Fiji. 

Anemonia species. Classed as "undesirable" due to its reproductive proficiency, this is an unwanted pest species complex that "comes in" incidental to live rock. 

Family Actinodendronidae: 

Actineria sp.  N. Sulawesi.

Where are other Tropical West Atlantic Anemones?

Anemones of the tropical West Atlantic have their own page... to save download time here among other reasons. 

About " Colored Anemones":

Yes, sad to state, there are such things... dealers in the orient use chemical dyes to stain mainly "Sebae" (Heteractis crispa) anemones various colors... even country's flag emblems... Sigh, no, the color doesn't last, and I strongly suspect it detracts from their health. Shown, an artificially colored H. crispa and "Sebae" (Clarkii) Clownfish.
