Description

White Striped 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 white striped color morph is fairly common, and is found in most geographic areas, so the supply is fairly steady. Some have red mouths like in the picture and some don’t, but all will be white striped. The average size is about 2 to 3 inches, but they can get as big as 4-5 inches. Look under the nano section for very small specimens.

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.

    My white striped flower anemone is fully open, front and left of center in my 125 gallon tank. At about 4 inches in diameter, it stands out beautifully against the backdrop of rock where it resides. It is eating voraciously and seems to have settled in nicely after a couple of weeks. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Additionally, I ordered a dark green flower anemone, having found the first to be so nice. It is somewhat smaller than the white stripe, and I placed it badly in my tank compared to the first. In a week, I went from placing it badly to losing it completely. Finally, after several days of regret over the lost anemone, it surfaced again and is now settling in under the shadow of a large toadstool coral, where it can reach for light but not be burned by it. It is a couple of inches in diameter at present, with beautiful phosphorescent green, white and yellow bits.

    I have a few variations of rock anemones and these striped ones are my favorite! They have such character and make such a presence in my tank.

    He stayed exactly where I put him. At the bottom of my rock in front of my tank. He ate right away when I fed them bits of shrimp and krill. Later when I fed my fish he even ate their pellet food. Love this coloration!

    Under blue lights they glow yellow and white.

    Received a very nice anemone in my order, I set him on a rock and within 5 hours he had moved around and found his favorite spot. Loads of character, and loves to be fed pieces of shrimp.

    2nd time buying this type of anemone from Sea Life. Each one looks great in my two tanks. Easy to take care of and really beautiful.

    Beautiful and fast growing anemone. This guy eats very well and stays put most of the time. I ordered one but got two (the other was a green/white). Both are beautiful and very unique. I wish I had room for more! Order was expertly packed and arrived in excellent condition.
