Ultra Flower Anemone – Pack of 5


Product Description

Ultra Flower Anemone, Epicystis crucifer, also called rock anemone or beaded anemone, are a uncommon anemones found through the Caribbean and Florida Keys.  They are also called flower anemones because of their bright colors and the often brightly colored mouths. Those variations of Ultra flower anemones are uncommon anemones compared to the more common colors which are found in very shallow water, so overall the supply is limited and sporadic. The average size is about 1 to 3 inches, but they can get as big as 4-5 inches. We find the Ultra flower anemones are smaller than their shallow water cousins. We try to fatten them up with a nice diet of mysis to increase their size.

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.

This 5 pack of flower anemones will a variation of colors and the pictures are examples of what colors can be available.

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.
