|Rainbow Bubble Tip Anemone
|APPROX SIZE: 1.5-2"
Entacmaea quadricolor, commonly known as Bubble-tip anemones, are a species of sea anemones belonging to the Actiniidae family. Their common name comes from the bulbous tips that form on each tentacle. The anemone’s delicate foot is located on the bottom. The foot has simple muscle fibers that help the anemone move and anchor onto rocks or sand. Bubble-tip anemones are often found in a variety of vibrant shades of red, pink, green, and orange. Most members of the Actiniidae family do not participate in the symbiotic relationship of hosting clownfish and other anemonefish that is often enjoyed by hobbyists, but the Bubble-tip anemone is an exception to the rule and usually makes a gracious host.
