WYSIWYG: Rock Flower Anemone Neon Green

WYSIWYG: Rock Flower Anemone Neon Green

  • $ 2999


The rock flower anemone, aka Phymanthus crucifer, is a hardy anemone to keep in the aquarium and is very appropriate for beginner aquarists. Due to its small adult size, 2" - 4", it is suitable for the nano aquarium. It will obtain the energy it needs from its photosynthetic zooxanthellae, but will also appreciate supplemental meaty feedings (eg Mysis shrimp). Moderate-to-bright lighting is needed. Any supplemental feeding will hasten growth and is particularly recommended if aiming for reproduction.

Interesting Fact: The female rock anemone broods the young internally, up to the 6, 12, or 24 tentacle stages of development. When the young are released, they tend to settle around the disk of the female. The young will accept feeding with items such as, brine shrimp naupulii, rotifers, Cyclop-Eeze, and phytoplankton. Newly released young are colorless; color development occurs within a few weeks.

Care: Moderate-to-bright lighting is needed. Any supplemental feeding will hasten growth and is particularly recommended if aiming for reproduction.
