NEW ITEM!! AquaCorals Tank Raised!!
Rainbow Rose Bubble Tip Anemones - Entacmaea quadricolor
Each specimen is sold by their average expansion size. Example: a specimen with an approx 1.5 - 2 inch foot size can expand 3 to 4+ inches when fully inflated. Do understand these animals are very much like balloons where they can inflate & deflate to the extreme in sizes. They will normally close/deflate during their dark ride in shipping & may take a couple days in their new home/your tank before fully acclimating/expanding. Your tank conditions, i.e., water quality, lighting offered & placement in your tank etc. will greatly determine how happy/expanded they will be.
Handle with care. All anemones sting so I recommend wearing aquarium gloves or at least medical exam gloves when handling.
These Bubble Tip Anemones are unique due to their coloration, having a "rainbow" of colors - Metallic Rose, Metallic Green & Metallic Pink tips! These all come from the same parent & many are grown out here at AquaCorals! Again, super RARE color form and tank raised to boot!! Doesn't get any healthier or beautiful than that!
Pictures here are in-house samples.
Bubble Tips are ONLY Anemone I will sell because...
All Anemones are opportunistic fish eaters & the Bubble Tip is the least aggressive & least likely to make a meal of your fish! I've found ALL Clownfish will go to the Bubble Tip anemones, readily reproduce in captivity and are the hardiest/easiest to keep of all anemones. They come in multiple colors with unique patterns too. Given all this, I can't with all good conscious offer any other species.
Can be kept singly or with other Bubble Tips but know if you have other species of anemones, it's likely they will move & seek each other out & fight, with one, if not both, dying from the encounter.
Bubble Tip Anemones appreciate a meaty meal once a week. When I feed mine I add a little more PE Mysis shrimp to my fish food mix. I feed my fish then go to my anemones & gently add a little food to the "ends" of their tentacles (never directly into their mouths!). If they are hungry, they will happily hang onto the food given, travel it to their mouths & consume it. Understand that what goes in, comes out the same hole for anemones so don't be surprised if you see a glob being expelled. Often times they will contract when "pooping" too so don't be alarmed. Also understand that all anemones are like balloons where they inflate their tissue with water & expand greatly like blowing up a balloon with air. Expanded tissue lightens the color of the animal whereas a closed animal's color will look darker, more intense. Certainly the light intensity over them will determine how they "look" so again, depending on how inflated or contracted they are will determine how they look minute by minute in your tank. This is something that makes them fascinating to watch - especially with Clownfish snuggling them!
