For best care, the Rose Bubble Tip Anemone should be housed in a large, established aquarium system with high water quality achieved through strong filtration and efficient protein skimming. Employ powerheads or wavemakers to provide moderate or medium water movement. An aquarium of at least 30 gallons in size is essential as the Rose Bubble Tip Anemone can grow up to 12" across in diameter. Consider a larger, more spacious system if you are planning to house the Rose Bubble Tip Anemone with fish or in a mixed reef system.
The Rose Bubble Tip Anemone hosts photosynthetic, symbiotic zooxanthellae algae within its body. Therefore, moderate to high lighting conditions achieved by T-5 fluorescent, powerful LED, or more intense metal halide light fixtures is a must to maintain continued health, bright coloration and its bulbous tips.
Under intense lighting conditions, the Rose Bubble Tip Anemone will typically remain compact, maintaining its bulbous tips. However, if the lighting is insufficient, the Rose Bubble Tip Anemone will expand its entire body, stretching out to make the most of the available light. At times, the tentacles may appear stringy; this may be due to insufficient light or the need for food.
Use gloves and handle this invertebrate, and all Anemones, with care. They can sting other anemones, as well as corals.
The diet of the Rose Bubble Tip Anemone should include chopped fish, shrimp, worms or other meaty items.
