Bubble Tip Anemones (Entacmaea quadricolor) are one of the most popular types in the hobby. They’re colorful, generally safe for reef fish, and they host clownfish in a well-known symbiotic relationship.
This variety is an eye-catching mixture of red and green, from a batch recently imported from Vietnam. The patterns on these anemones – the white markings on the oral disc, and the red and green fluorescent areas – differ from one anemone to the next. Each is a unique specimen. But all of them include red and green, you will not be disappointed with any of them.
These anemones like the same conditions as most corals – plenty of light and current. Observe them closely for a few days after adding to your tank since they sometimes wander around the tank until they settle in.
Like most anemones these are only suitable for a well-established tank, at least a year old. For reasons that are not well established they generally don’t do well in newly established tanks even if the tanks are perfectly suitable for fish.
Each anemone is a unique specimen. The one you receive will be one of those pictured here, or a similar one from the same batch.
