Mini Carpet Anemones come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, such that no two look the same. They are small, easy to keep, acclimate quickly, and can tolerate a variety of conditions, so they make a great addition to even smaller aquarium set-ups. They also self-propagate easily and frequently and without any extra work by the aquarist. As this anemone propagates, it will begin to create a beautiful tapestry across the rock. Be aware that this anemone is known to migrate around an aquarium, even if totally happy. If a moving anemone is not desired then one trick is to place rock rubble around it to slow down movement. These anemones prefer strong lighting and medium to high water flow. For continued health, provide a supplemented diet of frozen chunks of meaty foods. Be sure the foods are small enough to easily fit into their mouths.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
