The Heteractis Magnifica is also popularly known as the Ritteri Anemone. It has tentacles around its mouth and has a sticky foot on a pedal disc, which helps it to move further and anchor to various hard surfaces. The Heteractis Magnifica can be either solitary or colonial. In need of more light, it often moves and becomes mobile or else the Heteractis Magnifica stays sedentary for most of their lives. It is semi aggressive in nature and may sting other neighboring organisms present in the tank. When frightened, the Heteractis Magnifica may release out some chemical into the water to warn other anemones, which makes them retracting their tentacles into a ball form for protection. Despite of not having any sense organs, the Heteractis Magnifica has nerves in the body that enables it to communicate with other parts of the body and sense the environment. It is a carnivore, and mainly feeds on small fish, shrimp, isopods, mussels, and other planktons too. The Heteractis Magnifica also features nematocysts that possess a stinging effect, and helps it to catch prey and bring them into the coral disc to digest. It also contains symbiotic algae, which helps in manufacturing food using light energy and provides nutrition to the anemone. The presence of Clownfish helps it to acclimate faster, since this anemone serve as hosts to these clownfish.
