    Heteractis magnifica lives its entire life in the polyp form (cylindrical column with tentacles). It has a sticky foot on a pedal disc, and an oral disc which contains the mouth and surrounding tentacles. The oral disc is as small as 1.25 cm and reaches 1 m in diameter. Its size ranges from 300 to 500 mm in diameter. The oral disc is yellow, brown, or green. Many tentacles (to 75 mm long) surround the oral disc, which are located within 20-30 mm of the mouth.
