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.
