The Bubble Tip Anemone is mainly observed in brightly lit aquarium and mostly found attached to a rocky substrate. These colonies are known for having bulb ?shaped tentacle tips that give its very common name. Each of its anemone harbors photosynthetic algae within its tissues, it is that tentacle shape which is used in the regulation of this process. Often, it has been observed that clown fishes live within the protective tentacles of sea anemones, whereas its bubble tip also hosts several species of clownfish in captivity. Although regarded as one of the easiest anemones to maintain its captivity, the Bubble Tip Anemone does require particular condition to grow healthier. Apart from introducing in clean water, they have to be associated with high output light source. It ranges throughout the Indo-Pacific and occur in a variety of colors from green, brown and red. The Bubble Tip Anemone exhibits bubble tips, and the same will not move around the aquarium once it settles down and gets attached to any base. Many popular aquarium fishes such as trigger fishes, puffer fishes and angelfishes will harass and even kill anemones. In some cases, a clownfish hosting in an anemone will protect the anemone, but the aquarist who chooses to mix any of these fishes with anemones must keep a sharp eye out for any problems. These anemones can split and produce more of anemones in your home aquarium. The Bubble Tip Anemone should be provided with strong illumination and with decent water flow. They feed by slowly taking the prey using their tentacles to their mouth, which is a kind of slit in the centre of the body. Their tentacles are called as ?nematocysts?? and is poisonous in nature in order to stun the prey.
Love this thing, recieved it in great condition with a clown fish (already had two) and put it in and it has thrived. I only have one light (although a good one) and so far it has been doing amazing after a couple months. The clown fish never touch it during the day, but one always is sitting in it at night.

The Bubble Tip Anemone, a.k.a. Bulb Anemone, is a very popular Anemone because it readily hosts most Clownfish species. These Anemones are on the smaller side and have tentacles which form swelled bulbs at their tips. The Bubble Tip Anemone is known to "split" quite readily in the home aquarium, producing additional Anemones. They should be provided strong lighting and a decent water flow.Anemones are solitary polyp organisms which are supported internally by water. Anemone species are differentiated by the color, shape, placement, and length of the tentacles. These Cnidaria feed off of zooxanthellae within their bodies and need a strong light source in order to survive. They will also take in food by using their tentacles to slowly move the prey to their mouths which is a slit in the center of the body. This single opening also serves as its way of expelling waste. Anemones use tiny stinging cells in their tentalces called "nematocysts" in order to stun their prey. The nematocysts within these tentacles are also used as a defense mechanism. The nematocysts can also disturb human flesh and should be considered dangerous, especially to those that have known allergies. Anemones found in the wild usually have found a crevice to hide their foot, or base, leaving only the tentacles exposed.Some Anemones are shipped in little or no water. Float them for half an hour, discard any water in the bag, then release the Anemone directly into the aquarium. You can also choose to drip acclimate in a bucket by themselves.Anemones have nematocysts, a.k.a. stinging cells, and can be dangerous to the touch. These creatures can cause injury or death. By purchasing this item you agree that you understand this is a dangerous creature and that is not responsible for any injury or death that may occur.
