Yup, be careful of the colors. You want to purchase a bright vibrant variety. The darker colored ones are the ones that reside in california, which do not consume aiptasia -- I just recently learned this with an article online.

I have aiptasia in the tank and got stung a couple of times while moving rocks around, it's great now though. All aiptasia are gone and i'm happy.
