Product Description

Green Flower Anemone, Epicystis crucifer, also called rock anemones or beaded anemones, are a common shallow water anemone found through the Caribbean and Florida Keys. They are often found on rocky protected shoreline’s hence the name rock anemone, but are more aptly called flower anemones because of their bright colors and the often brightly colored mouths. This dark green color morph is fairly common in certain populations, and completely absent in other populations, so overall the supply is limited and sporadic. Some may have red mouths and some don’t, but all will be a rich, dark green like the picture. The average size is about 2 to 3 inches, but they can get as big as 4-5 inches.

These anemones are photosynthetic and like intense light. They are reef safe and don’t pose a real danger to most other reef critters (other than seahorses). The tentacles can sting small fish and shrimp, but they are not very effective at capturing small swimming critters. They will eat any small bits of meaty foods given to them, and will even eat pellet food. They are very hardy, and like most anemones, they ship well and can be sent by priority mail.

Please Note:  Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined.  All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system.  If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank.  If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak.  We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we don’’t always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed.  A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.

    I received a really cool color morph of this one. He is neon green and olive green ‘skirt or petals’ and olive green and tan center. I love how he looks under regular and blue light.

    The white striped are still my favs! Can’t wait until Kara and Philipp are going to get more colors in!

    Very hardy, and great color variations. The greens parts on some of these flouresce under moonlights. Not very aggressive, and tend to mostly stay put once they are happy. One of the best anemone choices for success.

    I have an assortment of at least 12 flower anemones I’ve purchased from Ken over the past year. All of them are doing great and have coexisted within my reef without causing any damage to the corals or other reef life. These have proven to be very hardy.
