Chicago Sunburst Anemone (Entacmaea sp.)


The Sunburst Anemone is a sought after highly pigmented red, green, and yellow, variant of the common Bubble Tip Anemone. This medium sized (up to 12″) rock dwelling anemone that is a great candidate for hosting with clownfish.  They do well in most strongly illuminated reef tanks with pristine water quality and regular feeding of meaty foods. These anemones are very mobile and can easily “walk” into pumps and overflow boxes.
