The Rockflower Anemone, also known as Epicystis crucifer, is a stunning and captivating marine invertebrate that adds a touch of natural beauty to any saltwater aquarium. Known for its vibrant colors and unique appearance, the Rockflower Anemone is a popular choice among aquarists.


Rockflower Anemones are relatively small, typically ranging from 2 to 6 inches in diameter. They require a well-established reef aquarium with stable water parameters and pristine water quality. It is important to provide them with proper lighting and water flow to simulate their natural habitat.


These anemones are known for their striking color variations, which can include shades of green, purple, blue, red, and orange. Each individual anemone displays a distinct pattern, making them visually captivating.


The Rockflower Anemone has a symbiotic relationship with certain clownfish species, providing them with protection in exchange for food. This makes them a fascinating addition to a reef tank that houses compatible clownfish species.


It is essential to note that Rockflower Anemones have specific care requirements and are considered more challenging to keep. They require stable water parameters, appropriate lighting, and a proper diet consisting of meaty foods, such as frozen mysis shrimp and small pieces of fish.


Please note that the Rockflower Anemone's care is more advanced and requires experience in maintaining a saltwater aquarium. It is recommended to consult with our knowledgeable staff at Living Aquarium for personalized guidance on caring for this exquisite marine invertebrate.
