Bubble Anemone

Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page8 Page9


The Bubble or Bubble-Tip Anemone, Entacmaea quadricolor, is one of the most popular of the clown-hosting anemones. There are a number of Bubble Anemone, the Rose Bubble, Rainbow Bubble, Snowflake Bubble, and Colored Bubble Anemone. The group of anemone's is attractive and one of the easier anemones to maintain. In the wild, the Bubble Anemone is known to host at least 13 different species of clownfish. The shape of this anemone's tentacles are one of its most spectacular and peculiar features. The tentacles can inflate to form an attractive bulbous, or pear-shaped enlargement just below the tip. Hence the common names Bubble Anemone, Bubble-Tip Anemone, Bulb Tentacle Anemone, Bulb Tip Anemone, and Bulb Anemone. The tentacles can also be without this swelling, more closely resembling the tentacles of the Long Tentacle Anemone Macrodactyla doreensis. Exactly why a particular Bubble-Tip Anemone may or may not inflate its tentacles is unknown. It has been suggested that the presence of a clownfish triggers them to inflate. The level of lighting is also suggested to possibly have an affect, as low illumination seems to encourage tentacles that are long and stringy. It is also suggested that they inflate after being fed. All of these conditions have been observed with particular anemones, however, none of them have proven to be conclusive.

Tank Recommendations: For the bubble tip anemone, E. quadricolor, the typical reef environment is what is needed for its health. A mature 100-gallon tank with live rock, at least 9 to 12 months old is advised for a full size 12" specimen. However, a small 2" juvenile bubble anemone can be taken care of in as small as a 30 gallon reef tank. Bubble Tip anemones will bury their column into crevices in or between rock. If you have sand, place pieces of rock down into the sand for it to attach to. For health provide moderate to high lighting, LED lighting is just fine. If a Bubble Anemone is not getting enough light they will move higher up on the rock-work. They require a low to moderate water movement, but cannot handle anything stronger. Water flow can be turbulent or linear, it doesn't seem to matter. A good protein skimmer is a must. After you've placed your bubble anemone will move to where it likes best. Once settled, if it's happy with adequate feedings and light, it will generally stay put, but now always. This anemone is known to wander about even when it isn't stressed or unhappy. Be careful with powerheads in marine systems containing anemones, as the animal can and will be killed if caught by the pump intake. All overflow and other similar areas should have their intakes covered with a sponge, to prevent damage should the anemone go wondering around the aquarium.

Food and diet: The Bubble Tip Anemone needs to be fed 3 to 4 times a week. Younger ones, and ones that are sick and have lost their zooxanthellae, need almost daily feedings with food that is finely clopped. You can feed your E. quadricolor chopped shrimp, krill, and mussels, fresh chopped fish (from your grocery store), as well as frozen carnivore preparations.

Level of Care: Easy to Keep

More Information: If you want your anemone to host clownfish, be sure the anemone is 3 to 4 times larger in diameter than the length of the clownfish you introduce, or it will be 'loved' to death. A 4 to 6” anemone with clowns that are introduced at a young age of 1 to 1.5” will work out well. Keep in mind, the more clowns you have translates into more “inches” of fish” for your anemone. It is best to buy the anemone first and give it a few months to acclimate and grow before adding clownfish.

*Recommended for: Expert aquarist, Zoo, or Research center: All of our livestock has a guarantee to arrive alive. However for species recommended for either Expert aquarist, Zoo, or Research center we cannot offer a guarantee beyond 2 hours after arrival for one or more reasons outlined below. This means the specific animal may not handle stress from environmental conditions well. These stresses can include poor water quality, harassment from tank mates, harm from pump intakes, or confined aquarium conditions. When stressed, these species can lose the ability to ward off infection and disease. Other species may be listed as Restricted because they have such specialized feeding requirements that is difficult to recreate in a aquarium and may succumb to malnutrition.
