Reef Aquarium Anemones

 
   
Anemones are invertebrates, as are 95% of the earth's creatures. Anemones attached to rocks or the sea floor. Anemones in the aquarium though, will often move around until they find a place that they like and then stay put. Most anemones survive in a symbiotic relation with with a marine algae called zooxanthellae. The zooxanthellae are photosynthetic organisms whose waste products are used by the anemone for food. Since the zooxanthellae require light to carry on photosynthesis, anemones in turn require bright light to thrive in the aquarium.
General Anemone Keeping Tips- Anemones all need lots of light to do well. They obtain most their nutrition from a symbiotic algae (zooxanthellae) that lives inside their tissues.Anemones prefer water free of organic wastes, which in most cases means you need to have an efficient protein skimmer. Maintaining the levels of trace elements in the water by performing regular water changes or the addition of commercially available supplements also seems to be important. Iron supplements also benefit the zooxanthellae in the anemones. Moderate current, in addition to clean water, helps exchange needed elements and rid the anemone of waste products. Some of the more delicate anemones seem to prefer higher temperatures in the range of 78-80 F and pH in a consistent range of 8.2-8.4.
Feeding your anemone- Feeding can range from 3 times a week to once every 2 weeks. Some aquarists have had success not directly feeding their anemones at all, although we suspect their anemones are capturing food that is meant for the fish. Food usually consists of a piece of raw shrimp about the size of the anemone's mouth. Lance fish, silversides, clams, scallops and other frozen marine organisms can also be used, but I find them more messy. A large bag of peeled and deveined shrimp can be obtained from one of the local discount supermarkets and may last many, many months. Liquid foods and Target foods may actually be harmful to your anemones directly (several aquarists stated that their anemones started to die as soon as they began to use liquid target foods) and indirectly though degradation of your water quality. The jury is still out on vitamins. Our suggestion would be to use them sparingly, or not at all.
NOTE on Anemone size: Anemones vary in size from day to day, this is normal. We have seen anemones look huge for a while, (trying to capture as much light as possible), and become half the size other times as they open and close. We make every effort to measure our anemones and give an accurate representation of size. If your new anemone arrives and looks small, please be patient and allow a few weeks for it to adjust to your tank and lighting conditions.
Note on Anemone Care , how not to be harmed by an anemone: When handling a anemone's we suggest using gloves or plastic bags, to keep from touching the specimen and possibly getting stung. Often times, the sting will not be readily aopparant, but in some people will result in an alergic rash, or pain. If this occurs a good cure is to place the infected area under hot water, and pour Vinegar over the area. This neutralizes the chemical on your skin which is causing you pain or itching.
Advanced Aquarist Species: We guarantee that ALL aquariam species offered will arrive alive and in good condition. However, because of the increased level of care required for certain anemone species marked advance aquarist , they have been designated as "Advanced Aquarist Species," and Saltwater Fish Depot cannot guarantee success after arrival. 


White Carpet Anemone
Stichodactyla sp.
Description: Carpet anemones have short pointed tentacles that seem to constantly move. The tentacles are usually not very densely packed except near the edges of the disk. Specimens with blue, bright green, yellow, or white tipped tentacles can be found and at some times of the year, but light brown is still the most common color. Carpet anemone's have strong lighting needs. Make sure the tank has Powercompacts, VHO's or Halides for success. They also require good water quality and moderate water flow. They are accepted by virtually all clownfish whether they occur together in nature or not.

Requirements: The Carpet Anemone requires a tank with strong lighting and good water movement. The aquarium should have a variety of sandy and rocky locations as this animal oftentimes can move about and seek refuge in a place it prefers. This species of Carpet Anemone prefers to bury its foot into the sandy bottom, and will oftentimes attach itself to the bottom of the aquarium glass, where its column is completely buried in the sand for protection. When first introducing this anemone into the display, it is best to try and dig out an area of the sand bed where you prefer it will reside, while decreasing the flow rate during this time so that its not blown around the display. Doing so will allow the anemone time to settle in and bury its foot completely into the sand bed. Once in place, carefully move some sandy substrate around the column and increase the flow rate back to the normal output.

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.

Care: For proper care, a fully established aquarium, with perfect water chemistry, adequate flow and strong illumination, along with weekly or even daily feeding is needed.

 Indonesia Rose Bulb Anemone
Entacmaea quadricolor sp.
Description: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

Lighting Requirements: In order for the Rose Bulb Anemone to stay beautiful, intense lighting is required. This means either halide lighting, or flourescent lightingor intense florescent lighting of at least 6 watts per gallon.

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 Carpet Anemone
Stichodactyla tapetum

Description: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 place it 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 T5's, lower down in a tank with MH's, or under LED lighting. 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 feedings 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.
Care Level:Easy

Colored Tipped Haitian Reef Anemone
Condylactis sp.
Description:The Colored or Pink-Tipped 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 Anemone.

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 zooxanthelle 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.
Diet/Feeding: The Pink-Tipped 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.

   Purple Tipped Sebae Anemone
Heteractis crispa
Description: The scientific name for Purple Tipped Sebae Anemone is Heteractis Crispa. Other common names include Sebae Anemone, Leather Anemone, and Radianthus Keukenthali. The Sebae Anemone shares a symbiotic relationship with a variety of clownfish such as, Clark’s, Bluestripe, Cinnamon, Oman, Orange Skunk, Pink Skunk, Percula, True Percula, Saddleback, Red Saddleback, White-band, Two-band, Three-band, Tomato, Barrier Reef White Bonnet, Maroon, Gold Band Maroon, Yellow Stripe Maroon, Sebae and Clarkii to name some. In fact, Heteractis crispa can host nearly any type of clownfish.

The Sebae's tentacles usually have magenta colored tips although yellowish-green tips are also found. The oral disk may also have a green sheen under actinic light.

LIghting: The Sebae anemone requires a high lighting intensity in the marine tank it inhabits. A recommendation of 250 watt to 400 watt halide lighting or equivalent is nescessary for the heath of the Heteractis crispa.

Habitat: The Sebae Anemone may move around in your aquarium till it finds a suitable place to settle down on sand or on a rock. It requires good water quality and the addition of iodine to the water as a dietary supplement.

Diet and Feeding: TIts 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.

Magnifica Ritteri Anemone
Heteractis magnifica

Description: Also referred to as the Magnificent Anemone, or Heteractis Magnificent Sea Anemone. Maximum size for this anemone is 12". Its tentacles have a long, non-tapering shape that may, on occasion, appear swollen at the tips. They can almost completely retract into the base.The presence of a Clownfish, such as Amphiprion ocellaris, Amphiprion percula, or Amphiprion perideraion, will help it acclimate.

Lighting: This Anemone requires strong lighting combined with strong, but intermittent, water movement within the tank. It generally prefers a high point in the tank to ensure it obtains all the light it needs, but it may change locations, seeking the ideal conditions.

Diet/Feeding: Besides requiring bright light, their diet should include Mysis Shrimp, and micro-plankton a few times per week. It also can be fed very small bits of raw shrimp or silversides..

This species is very difficult to keep and should only be attempted by expert aquarists. It is also a 'delicate shipper.' and their is no guarantee on this species at all.

  Purple Tube Anemone
Cerianthus
 
Description:The Tube Anemone is best kept in a reef with a soft, deep substrate. It creates its tube from the nematocysts that it has discharged. Their coloration is highly variable and the most popular colors are bright orange, bright purple and bright green. The ideal aquarium for the Tube Anemone is one with a deep sand bed, plenty of live rock and a refugium for a natural food source. It is actually a distant relative of the true sea anemone. It prefers periodic intermittent currents and needs moderate lighting within the aquarium.

Diet and Feeding: Because they are not photosynthetic, they need to be fed regularly when tentacles are fully expanded. They prefers to be fed often, even daily, with brine shrimp or pieces of fresh fish or shrimp.

However, because of the increased level of care required for certain anemone species marked advance aquarist , they have been designated as "Advanced Aquarist Species," and Saltwater Fish Depot cannot guarantee success after arrival. Photos are representative of each species. Each animal is unique and variations should be expected.
