Bubble Tip Anemones come in a variety of colors; mostly different shades of green. Rare red Bubble Tip Anemones are often called Rose Anemones. If you have never kept an anemone before, the Bubble Tip Anemone is your best choice. These beautiful anemones are much easier to keep than any other anemone we sell. Although all anemones can move around the aquarium, Bubble Tip 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 clown-fish including, Ocellaris, Percula, Maroon, and Gold Maroon Clown-fish. Keeping the anemone with a clown-fish will help it acclimate faster since the clown-fish will feed it scraps of food.
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. Be prepared to move corals out of its way if it should choose to anchor too close to them.
We recommend wearing gloves when handling Bubble Tip Anemones. When placing the anemone try to support it from its slippery underside. Do not use tongs, and do not touch this anemone with bare hands.
Turn down the flow and place the Bubble Tip Anemone in a crevice in the rock. After it has attached you may increase the flow again. Try to minimize handling and support it by its slippery foot as much as possible. Leave 3"-5" between the anemone and nearby corals. Remember that it may or may not choose to stay where you place it. If it moves to a different spot be prepared to move corals out of its way. It will not sting and kill corals instantly but they should be moved away within 12-24 hours. If a Bubble Tip Anemone anchors where you don't want it to try adjusting the direction of flow in the aquarium to cause it to release and re-attach elsewhere.
