The Rose Anemone is a rare color morph of the Bubble Tip Anemone.
These are beautiful anemones and are much easier to keep than any other anemone we sell. Although all anemones can move around the aquarium Rose Anemones seem to stay put much better than other anemones. They prefer to anchor their column, or foot, on the rock rather than the sand.
The Bubble Tip Anemone will host a wide variety of clownfish including, Maroon, Gold Maroon, Clarkii, Tomato, and Bluestripe Clownfish. Keeping the anemone with a clownfish will help it acclimate faster since the clownfish will feed it scraps of food.
Although Bubble Tip Anemones come in a variety of colors the red Rose Anemone is the least common and most sought after by aquarists. Given a proper environment the Rose Anemone will grow and reproduce by fission in the home aquarium.
The Rose Anemone has a potent sting that may harm other anemones or corals as it moves about the aquarium. Be ready to move corals out of its way if it should choose to anchor too close to them. Do not try to move the anemone once anchored because its column, or foot, can be easily torn. Most anemones will die from a torn column.
Feed large pieces of squid, shrimp, and other meaty foods several times a week. Use a feeder stick and touch the piece of food against the anemone. Its sticky tentacles will grab onto the food. Be careful not to poke the anemone.
