    Super Colored Long Tentacle Anemone
    Macrodactyla doreensis

    Description: As the name implies, Long Tentacle Anemones have very long (up to 5-6 in.), smooth, thick tentacles sometimes with longitudinal stripes extending into the oral disk. The tentacles originate from a round flat oral disk, distinguishing it from the condylactis anemone. The foot of the base is almost always bright red or orange. They are hardy if kept under moderately good lighting, power compacts or better. Accepted by Clarki, Maroon, Sebae, Tomato, and Skunk clowns.

    Requirements: The Long Tentacle Anemone requires a tank with good lighting and good water movement. The aquarium should have a variety of sandy and rocky locations as this animal often times can move about and seek refuge in a place it prefers. This species of Long Tentacle Anemone prefers to bury its foot into the sandy bottom, and will often times attach itself to the bottom of the aquarium glass, where its column is completely buried in the sand for protection. When first introducing this anemone into the display, it is best to try and dig out an area of the sand bed where you prefer it will reside, while decreasing the flow rate during this time so that its not blown around the display. Doing so will allow the anemone time to settle in and bury its foot completely into the sand bed. Once in place, carefully move some sandy substrate around the column and increase the flow rate back to the normal output.

    Diet and Feeding: Its diet should include chopped fish, shrimp, or worms if a clown fish is not present, feed with a feeding stick. Pieces should be cut smaller than the size of the anemones mouth. At times, the tentacles may appear stringy; this may be due to insufficient light or the need for food.

    Approximate Inflated Size: Small: 2" to 3"; Medium: 3" to 5"; Large: 5" to 6-1/2"; XLarge 7" to 9"

    Small $40 Medium $50 Large $60 XLarge $70
