This anemone does very well and has been with us for over a decade in our coral farm. This species has red tentacles with hues of purple, a purple/blue and green disc base and a green foot.
Take extreme caution when adding an anemone with flow pumps inside the aquarium. They need some time to attached to the reef and find a suitable place to live. New anemones can crawl into flow wave making pumps and powerheads while this is happening and get badly damaged if they get sucked in. Flow pumps will not be an issue once the anemone finds a home. We like to add anemones to most of our reef aquarium designs and installations.
