The Bubble Tip Anemone, Entacmaea quadricolor, is mainly found in reefs, and its pedal discs are usually attached deep within the dead coral. 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 metal halides, LED, or intense florescent lighting of at least 6 watts per gallon. The 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 Bubble Tip Anemone can get acclimatized in the tank much more easily - they will also pair well with clownfish. 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. 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, so please handle with care. The Bubble Tip Anemone can produce multiple copies of themselves every few weeks, but the breeding in captivity is difficult.
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.

Anemone arrived very closed up, so I was a little worried. I've never had an anemone before, so I was very excited when this one immediately hooked on to the rock and opened up as soon as I placed it. It quickly retreated to the back of the tank and does not come out. It's very pretty and I would LOVE to see it more often, but apparently it is shy. Great lighting so I'm hopeful it will come out as it gets more comfortable with the tank.

Anemone arrived in good shape and still had good color. He was so healthy that during the acclimation process it attached to the bottom of the cooler. After about 2.5 hours I managed to get it loose and into the tank. It immediately grabbed on to a piece of rock and seemed very content. My two clown fish are hovering above it trying to figure out what they should do. Overall, couldn't be more pleased.
