Gathered from the reefs of Vietnam, these Mini Maxi Carpet Anemones host intense colors under a range of lighting. While related to their larger counterparts such as Stichodactyla haddoni, they are much less aggressive and are not known to host clownfish due to their smaller size. Normally ranging from 1"-3" and come in a wide range of color and patterns. An excellent addition for any aquarist, the anemone requires an established tank, strong light, medium flow and solid water parameters. Select target feeding isn't required but periodic meaty feedings will encourage its growth and coloration.

Anemones are able to move about slowly with the aid of a foot on the base of their column shaped body. They will move about the aquarium until they find a space with good flow, strong light and many times, a place to retract amongst rock. It's important to note that they should be placed in a seasoned aquarium before other expensive and delicate corals are added as they can move and string them. Even anemones that have been situated for years have been known to move about as they reproduce by fission. Care should be taken with powerheads to avoid being pulled in and chopped up about the aquarium.
