The Long Tentacle Anemone, Macrodactyla doreensis, also known as the Corkscrew Anemone, Sand Anemone, and Red Base Anemone, comes in a multitude of colors and features uniquely long tentacles. It slender, smooth tentacles originate from its flat oral disc making for an elegant and active display in the tank. It is a relatively peaceful anemone that won't bother other inverts so it is considered reef safe. Growing up to 20 inches, the Long Tentacle Anemone should not be kept in a tank less than 30 gallons. It will thrive in tanks with moderate lighting, moderate flow, and a thick sandy substrate of at least four inches. The Long Tentacle Anemone will rely primarily on zooxanthellae's photosynthetic ability as its food source but will readily accept carnivorous preparations as a supplement.
Just got my 1st LTA! Put it in my 80G tank and within 5min my peppermint shrimp started trying to pull it's tentacles off! I moved the LTA to my 29 Biocube (with 10min acclimation) and it found a spot and attached thru the sand within 15min right in the front! Awesome! Beautiful anemone and is almost 4" diameter! Love it! Hope my clowns love it too!

Love this. Bigger than expected. After a couple of weeks my dominos are fighting to play in it.
