Do they move around alot like a typical anemone? Will they sting other corals?
@MSB123 Have you seen these yet?
"So far, all we know about these Rainbow Bottom anemones is that they look like, but we don’t know their official name, or if they are described. There’s no consensus on whether they are photosynthetic or not, but either way they’ll enjoy a target feeding just like any anemone. We also don’t know where they come from but most sources seem to indicate that aquarium specimens are originating from Hong Kong, but this is simply their point of sale, not necessarily their natural habitat. "
We don't even know anything about them, yet they are being collected and sold. :/
the reef builders article is/was trash, treat them like a long tentacle, they come from japan and they are cold water . they will/can sting coral and they will also host clowns
They’d be great for a cold water display but otherwise 100% unsuitable for the average reef tank.
They are a cold water anemone (scientific name Anthopleura fuscoviridis) that ranges as far north as Alaska. They are also non-photosynthetic and very aggressive. Chances are they may exist especially in reef tanks kept in the mid 70’s, but they will never thrive similar to the blue spot jawfish. Also for the $500 they are going for you can fly to the west coast and go collect one yourself lol
