Bubble Tip Anemones

The Bubble Tip Anemone is one of the most sought after anemones for the home aquarium, due to its amazing range of colours and unique appearance. This anemone may not always have bubble tips and look like a regular anemone, this is because this tips will only form once the anemone is under a intense light. This anemone also holds sweeper tentacles which will dip out and scout around for food. 

In order to give this anemone the correct conditions for it to thrive within, it is important that your aquarium is fitted with very strong lighting, and a water volume of at least 100 litres. These anemones will most certainly change their size and shape according to your lighting, if your lighting is not too intense you will find the anemone will lose its bubble tips and become larger and longer in a hope of expanding itself in search of absorbing as much light as possible. Additionally, if the tentacles become thin, it may mean the anemone needs more light or needs to be fed. Lastly, if you want to improve the anemones conditions further it is a wise decision to add a clownfish that can host it and feed it. 

Anemones are very aggressive, and if it is housed too close to other corals you will probably find that it will sting them which will cause great harm to the corals. 

This anemone should be fed regularly if it has no clownfish to feed it, and this should be done through offering a variety of meaty foods, such as fish, worms and shrimps.

  1. They are certainly interesting to watch. Their shape changes almost hourly from big and swollen to small and shrivelled. Unfortunately one ate a cardinal fish I had in my tank – but it gets along with my clown and damsels.

  2. I initially had no luck with this anemone keeping it under T5 bulbs, however as soon as I moved over to aquarays it really thrived and the tips bulbed and its colour came out well. My clownfish also love it and hosted it straight away.
