General info about Sebae Anemone

Heteractis malu it was previously named Radianthus keukenthali. Heteractis malu is usually light tan to brown in color, and may have purple tips on its tentacles. Acclimation to aquarium life can be very difficult for this species and its care should only be attempted by the most experienced aquarists. In the aquarium, it requires strong lighting, porous live rock, and a variety of sandy and rocky locations from which it can choose to live. The addition of a Clownfish, such as the Blue Striped Clown, Amphiprion chrysopterus, will immediately help with its acclimatization and improve its chances of survival. When healthy, it will become very sticky. If it grasps onto something (or someone), it will be very difficult to convince it to let go without damaging it. Hosting The Heteractis Malu anemone has been known to have a symbiotic relationship with A. Akallapisos (Skunk Clownfish), A. Clarkii (Clark's Clownfish), A. Melanopus (Red and Black Clownfish), A. Ocellaris (Ocellaris Clownfish), A. Percula (Percula Clownfish), A. Perideraion (Pink Skunk Clownfish), A. Akallopisos (Skunk Clownfish).
