The Rose Bubble Tip Anemone is mainly found in reefs, and its pedal discs are usually attached deep within the dead coral. The Rose Bubble Tip Anemone can stretch its tentacles on predating and are called sweeper tentacles. It has the ability to sting other anemones and corals, therefore keep these aforementioned organisms away from the Rose Bubble Tip Anemone. It requires strong illumination supplied by metal halides, LED, or intense florescent lighting of at least 6 watts per gallon. The Rose Bubble Tip Anemone should be kept not less that 30 gallon, as it intends to grow up to 12 inch across in the aquarium. If there are clownfish present in the tank, then the Rose Bubble Tip Anemone can get acclimatized in the tank much more easily. It can be fed with chopped fish, shrimp, or worms. To maintain its vibrant color it should be fed with vitamin enriched food, that helps in maintaining a long lasting color. The Rose Bubble Tip Anemone adds a splash of red color in your tank and makes a very good choice in your tank. It thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4, therefore the water parameters has to be regulated daily for its proper growth. The tentacles are covered by numerous stinging cells called cnidocytes, which darts tiny hairpin-like structures into prey when contact is made, which then inject venom into the victim. The Rose Bubble Tip Anemone can produce multiple copies of themselves every few weeks, but the breeding in captivity is difficult.
So beautiful!
Just recieved my Rose bubble tip this last week and put her in a floating container overnight for further acclimation, she is now on a rock and full blown. Very beautiful. Thank you.

The Rose Bubble Tip Anemone adds lots of color to an aquarium.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 Saltwaterfish.com is not responsible for any injury or death that may occur.
