Rose Bulb Anemone's
Highly in demand,the
Rose Bulb Anemone is the less seen color variation of the Bubble
Tip Anemone. When housed beneath bright aquarium lighting, the
Rose Bulb Anemone develops a unique bulb tip at the end of its
tentacles, hence the name Bulb Anemone. When hungry, this member
of the Actiniidae family will stretch its sweeper tentacles to
grab food from the water column. After feeding, the tentacles
then shorten again
order for the Rose Bulb Anemone to stay beautiful, intense lighting
is required. This means either halide lighting, or fluorescent
lighting or intense florescent lighting of at least 4 watts per
The Rose Bulb Anemone will typically remain tight or compact
with bulb like tips. If the aquarium lighting is insufficient,
the Rose Anemone will enlarge their body to get the most out
of the light provided. For best results with a Rose Bulb Anemone
you must provide a Clownfish.
Diet and Feeding:
Its diet should include chopped
fish, shrimp, or worms if a clownfish is not present, feed with
a feeding stick. Pieces should be cut smaller than the size of
the anemones mouth. At times, the tentacles may appear stringy;
this may be due to insufficient light or the need for food. Under
ideal conditions under high intensity lighting and proper keeping,
the Rose Anemone can grow up to about 8 inches in diameter.

Ultra Maxi Mini
Wait till you see these under LED's
or actinic lighting! These are not died colors. This photo has
not been touched up. Maxi Mini Carpet Anemone's are also called
Pizza Anemone's. They are exceptionally hardy, easy to keep ,
and extremely simple to clone by cutting. Maxi mini carpets come
from Vietnam. They came into the U.S. market about 5 years ago
and only recently have the really nice colors been coming in!
Unlike the mini carpet anemones, these maxi anemones come in
a rainbow of colors and grow up to 5 inches.
The maxi mini anemone is very easy to keep and acclimates within
minutes when you introduce it into your tank. It prefers to live
in rock and will move quickly to your rock work if you placeit
on a sand bed. A good suggestion is to have a few pieces of rubble
rock around to place the anemones in so they won't move around
too much. Once they are settled in to their spot with good light
and decent flow, they will usually stay in one place. Most people
keep their anemones under LED's, PC's, and T5's. When keeping
under LED's keep them only lower down in a tank. To see all the
beautiful colors in Maxi Mini Carpet Anemones actinic / blue
lighting is required to get the beauties to fluoresce under.
Maxi mini carpets have a week sting compared to other anemones
and other corals. They are not aggressive and you don't have
to worry about them digesting your corals during the night, like
some other corals would do. I would not advise putting them next
to other types of anemones as the maxi minis will probably be
damaged. You can keep several maxi mini carpet anemones together
in a tank. Since they come in a variety of striking colors, a
maxi mini tank is quite beautiful. Diet Though mostly photosynthetic, supplemental feeding's
of raw table shrimp, clam, mussel, silversides, squid and other
marine based meats can be fed every few days. Pieces should be
cut roughly to the size of the anemones mouth.

The Colored or Pink-Tipped
Reef Anemone is collected from the Western Atlantic Ocean in
lagoons or on inner reefs, as individuals, or loose groups, with
their range extending from Brazil to Bermuda. Also known as the
Atlantic Anemone, the Haitian Reef Anemone, and the Caribbean
The Pink-Tipped Anemone is one of the most familiar and commonly
available of the anemones in the aquarium trade. Its beautiful
colors and inexpensive price make it a popular anemone, especially
for beginners. In the aquarium a base size of about 4" is
common. This species has diverse color variations. The base color
is usually brown to white and the tentacles may or may not have
magenta, purple, or green tips on its long tapering tentacles.
The tentacles may occasionally develop a bubble-like appearance
to them. It prefers to bury its base in the sand or into the
crevice of a rock for protection.
The Pink-Tipped Anemone is a hardy aquarium anemones, but this
sea anemone species still needs good light to do well in the
aquarium. Like all sea anemones they are photosynthetic and need
light to keep the zooxanthella that lives within their body tissue
alive. The Condylactis Anemone has been known to deflate at times.
This is normal if it happens once every few weeks, but no more
than that. This behavior, the sea anemone purging, may indicate
a water change is needed.
The typical reef environment is what is needed for your Condylactis
Anemone. Live rock and a sand/reef environment is typical of
the Western Atlantic.They need live rock or some other solid
material they can attach to. Be sure to have all of your pumps
covered, most good quality pumps have guards on them and are
worth the investment. Because this anemone will move about, you
will want to provide foam filters over any power head intakes.
Anemone is a carnivore. Feed it chopped silversides, shrimp,
krill, and mussels, fresh chopped fish (from your grocery store),
as well as frozen carnivore preparations. Feed once a week or
less. Since this is a cooler water anemone, their metabolism
would be much slower than the more tropical sea anemones.
