The Bubble Tip Anemone, Entacmaea quadricolor, The 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 Bubble Tip Anemone. It requires strong illumination supplied by LED, or intense florescent lighting of at least 6 watts per gallon. The Bubble Tip Anemone should be kept in a tank with plenty of space as it intends to grow up to 12 inch across in the aquariumTo maintain its vibrant color it should be fed with vitamin enriched food, that helps in maintaining a long lasting color.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, so please handle with care. This specimen has a purple base.
Cool and healthy anemone
Great color and pattern. I acclimated first two hours and it seems really happy in the tank. Good size for "small" too!
