The Saddle Anemone, Stichodactyla haddoni, is commonly
referred to as Haddon's Anemone, Saddle Carpet Anemone, or the
Saddleback Anemone. It features short and blunt stinging tentacles that
should be accounted for during handling and placement away from other
corals. The Saddle Anemone is an excellent host for clownfish and will
flourish in tanks with strong lighting, strong water movement, and a
thick sandy substrate. Its beautiful colors and flowing tentacles make
for a visually stunning addition to any tank.
Saddle Anemone can be fickle and difficult to handle for beginner
aquarists. Therefore, we recommend that only experienced aquarists
attempt to care for this anemone. They can be aggressive and should not
be kept with docile fish or inverts.
if handled and cared for correctly, the Saddle Anemone can be one of
the most active and interesting organisms in your tank, especially if
paired with a clownfish.
NOTE: The 'colored' designation means this specimen will be exceptionally vivid in its coloration.
