Well done Tychi! A nice slightly different variation from Peter's in shape and color 8-)
The alternation of colors is pretty.
If I counted correctly, you used 1020 rods (84 per tentacle + 12 support)
On your zoomed-in photo we can't see your reflection. Where are you ? ;-)

This model is still on my to-do list!
I read about the collapse problems you had during construction. Thanks for the description, I will take that into account when I go for it ;)
(The problem is that I'm very busy at the moment and I don't have a moment to myself :cry: )

I found this on the Flickr page of Peter and mates - Geomag Model Team, to have a closer view of the anemone (nice colors btw):
Picture 1
Picture 2
Picture 3

Peter(?) says in the comment: "The glass display couldn't fit the whole model, so it's only partly built. For the sake of stability during the expo, the 'arms' aren't extended to their theoretical maximum."

Nice!
Maybe you could fit a bowl inside to get a storage compartment for car keys or small items
