Rose Bulb Anemone's
Description:Highly in demand, the
Rose Bulb Anemone is the
less seen color variation of the Bubble Tip Anemone. When housed
beneath bright aquarium lighting, the Rose Bulb Anemone develops
a unique bulb tip at the end of its tentacles, hence the name
Bulb Anemone. When hungry, this member of the Actiniidae family
will stretch its sweeper tentacles to grab food from the water
column. After feeding, the tentacles then shorten again
In order for the Rose Bulb Anemone to stay beautiful, intense
lighting is required. This means either halide lighting, or flourescent
lightingor intense florescent lighting of at least 6 watts per
The Rose Bulb Anemone will typically remain tight or compact
with bulb like tips. If the aquarium lighting is insufficient,
the Rose Anemone will enlarge their body to get the most out
of the light provided. For best results with a Rose Bulb Anemone
you must provide a Clownfish.
Feeding: Its diet should
include chopped fish, shrimp, or worms if a clownfish is not
present, feed with a feeding stick. Pieces should be cut smaller
than the size of the anemones mouth. At times, the tentacles
may appear stringy; this may be due to insufficient light or
the need for food.
Under ideal conditions under high intensity lighting and proper
keeping, the Rose Anemone can grow up to about 8 inches in diameter.
Inflated Size: Medium 3"

Purple Long Tentacle Anemone
As the name implies, Purple Long Tentacle Anemones have very long (up to 5-6 in.), smooth, thick tentacles sometimes with longitudinal stripes extending into the oral disk.
The tentacles originate from a round flat oral disk, distinguishing it from the condylactis anemone. The foot of the base is almost always bright red or orange. They are hardy if kept under moderately
good lighting, power compacts or better. Accepted by Clarki, Maroon, Sebae, Tomato, and Skunk clowns.
The Purple Long Tentacle Anemone requires a tank with good lighting and good water movement. The aquarium should have a variety of sandy and rocky locations as this animal
often times can move about and seek refuge in a place it prefers. This species of Purple Long Tentacle Anemone prefers to bury its foot into the sandy bottom, and will often times attach itself
to the bottom of the aquarium glass, where its column is completely buried in the sand for protection. When first introducing this anemone into the display, it is best to try and dig out an area
of the sand bed where you prefer it will reside, while decreasing the flow rate during this time so that its not blown around the display. Doing so will allow the anemone time to settle in and
bury its foot completely into the sand bed. Once in place, carefully move some sandy substrate around the column and increase the flow rate back to the normal output.
Diet and Feeding:
Its diet should include chopped fish, shrimp, or worms if a clown fish is not present, feed with a feeding stick. Pieces should be cut smaller than the size of the anemones mouth.
At times, the tentacles may appear stringy; this may be due to insufficient light or the need for food.

Red Flower Anemone's |
Description:Flower Anemones are found in a variety of colors. For many years only rather drab,
usually green colored flower anemones were collected for the hobby, but recently brightly colored specimens
have become more readily available. Also known as "Rock Anemones", they fix
their foot onto rocks or other hard surfaces and, once attached, will not be moved easily.
They are an excellent anemone to add some color to a reef tank as they stay under about 5″ in size and
usually stay in one place rather than moving around and stinging coral like many anemones do.
They can also be placed in groups if desired. They tend to fluoresce very nicely under blue lighting.
They can extend their foot up to several inches through substrate. They do not host clown fish, but will host crabs
and shrimp that normally host in anemones like Porcelain Crabs or Sexy Shrimp. The anemones like a brightly lit rocky
location in the tank. If you want them on the sandbed, place them on some coral rubble buried in the sand and they will
usually stay put. They are safe with fish and corals. This anemone is not a suitable host for clownfish. They are hardy if kept under moderately
good lighting, power compacts or better. There are many different color variations available but they are all stunning and beautiful.
You will receive an Ultra Red Rock/Flower Anemone when you order this type but it may be a different variation.
Place your anemone either on the sand bed or low on rock work.
The placement locations should have low to medium water movement and moderate lighting levels.
Diet and Feeding:
Anemones get most of their nutrition
from the aquarium lighting and dissolved nutrients in the water but once a week feeding's
are beneficial. Small pieces of shrimp, clam, krill and other meaty foods can be fed occasionally by placing
the food on top of the anemone near its mouth and making sure no other tank mates take it
before the anemone can take it in.
Approximate Inflated Size:
3-1/2" to 5"
