Etichodactyla tapetum, commonly known as “Mini-Maxi Carpet anemones” or “Mini Carpets,” are a species of sea anemones belonging to the Stichodactylidae family. 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. This is a smaller species of anemone that can grow up to 4-6 inches in diameter. Mini-Maxi Carpet anemones are often found in a variety of colors and color combinations. These particular anemones do not participate in the symbiotic relationship of hosting anemonefish that is often enjoyed by hobbyists, but will occasionally host certain species of shrimp and even porcelain crabs.
