The Rose Bubble Tip Anemone, orRTBA, is a color morph of the Bubble Tip Anemone. If you have never kept an anemone before, the Rose Bubble Tip Anemone is your best choice. These beautiful anemones are easy to keep. Although all anemones can move around the aquarium, Bubbletips seem to stay put better than most anemones. They prefer to anchor their column, or foot, on the rock rather than the sand. Bubbletips will host a wide variety of clownfish including Ocellaris, Percula, Maroon, and Gold Maroon Clownfish. Keeping the anemone with a clownfish will help it acclimate faster since the clownfish will feed it scraps of food. For best care, the Bubble Tip Anemone requires strong lighting in aquariums of at least 30 gallons. Under ideal conditions, it can grow up to 1-ft in diameter. However, most typically remain compact in size when kept under bright lighting. If the lighting is insufficient, the Bubble Tip Anemone will expand its body to make the most of the available light. It should be kept with a Clownfish for best care. At times, the tentacles of the Bubble Tip Anemone may appear stringy; this may be due to insufficient light or the need for food. Its diet should include chopped fish, shrimp, or worms if a clownfish is not present.
