General info

Green Long Tentacle Anemone, Macrodactyla doreensis, is also known as the Corkscrew Anemone. It’s a very nice, large growing anemone with the ability to reach up to 19”. It has a green color with some very spots seen on its foot. Many people place is low in tank for this reason.

It does well with bright lighting, some fine substrates of sand or mud and mature reef. Ensure you have at least 4” of substrate or even deeper. Crushed coral is not recommended as the anemone can lacerate its foot.

As seen in the Bubble Tip Anemones, these Long Tentacles Anemones don’t always house Clownfish. However, they will on occasion form symbiotic relationships with them. If housing in a tank, don’t expect the relationship to be guaranteed as its fairly low chances. Regardless, they are a beautiful anemone on their own.


Other Common Names are Corkscrew Anemone, Sand Anemone, Red Base Anemone, Red Tentacle Base Anemone.
