    Captive care – This is one the most difficult animals to keep in this hobby. They require extremely high lighting conditions, and pristine water. They are extremely sensitive to copper, nitrates and any swing in parameters can be fatal. Extreme caution should be taken with any anemone because when they die, the toxins they release can and will kill everything else in the aquarium. Any anemone should not be tempted in a tank less than a year old. When introduced to a tank an anemone will wander around until it finds a suitable place to live. It can sting other anemones, corals and fish so be sure it has plenty of space. This anemone comes in a variety of different colors. The Condy anemone is the prey of red-legged crabs so don’t include them your setup if you desire this anemone. This anemone does not host clown fish.
