Description


General: The Blue Tip Sebae Anenome (Heteractis crispa) naturally wedge themselves between rocks, deep within waters of the Indonesian Ocean. As with any Anenome, the Blue Tip Sebae will actively search for a desirable livingspace. Eventually, the Anenome will become situated. Attempts to house various coral species with Anenome, even after the Anenome has become situated, will typically failure due to the elongated sweeping tentacles agitating anything near them. The Blue Tip Sebae Anenome will host a variety of Clownfish, and will actively attempt to collect resources at night.

Aquarium Diet (Carnivore): Providing Anenome with various species of Shrimp, as well as other macroscopic food particles naturally present within cycled aquaria, will promote accelerated growth rates.

Temperament: The Blue Tip Sebae Anenome (Heteractis crispa) are typically a semi aggressive Anenome, that utilizes sweeper tentacles at night. It is often best to maintain a 12 to 24 inch interval between multiple Anenome.
