Anemones are sessile with a specialized foot used to anchor them in soft substrates or attach themselves to rocks and corals. They are fascinating creatures to watch and are a great addition to an established Reef Aquarium. Most anemones are fairly hardy and easy to care for, but some can be quite difficult to keep. Care must be taken when handling anemones as some pack a powerful painful sting. The popular bubble tip anemones, and a few others, will host clownfish. Anemones need to be fed bits of fresh uncooked fish, shrimp or other meaty foods at least once a week. Anemones need an established tank with excellent water conditions, moderate to strong current and intense lighting.
