Tank compatibility

The Curlique Anemone may eat smaller fish.


Frozen foods, small pieces of fish, crustaceans, zooplankton, phytoplankton, and mussels.

Feeding regime

About three times a week with a baster or a refugium that is incorporated with the tank.

Environment Specifics

The Curlique Anemone is suitable for a reef tank, with larger fish, as smaller ones may be eaten. The only clownfish that may end up hosting it is the Clark's Clownfish, as the anemone is native to a place with no clownfish.


The Curlique Anemone rarely moves around the tank unless it is unhappy with its surrounding, which is a bad sign.


The anemone's column is short and wide, with translucent tentacles ringed with whorls and spirals formed by groups of cnidocytes. The general colour is grey or brown with the cnidocyte area cream coloured.
