We covered the first Halcurias anemone that appeared at live aquaria a couple weeks ago, and as there is more and more of these puppy’s popping up in the trade, here is a reminder why they a freaking awesome. One glimpse at the picture above should make you agree that this is an anemone that would truly deserve to be in a biotope aquarium.
Halcurias anemones come from cooler waters so they require much cooler temperatures than any conventional reef tank, preferably below 72F. A perfect temperature to keep deep water fish along with the Halcurias anemones, if they wouldn’t eat your fish of course, because they are of course non-photosynthetic. Because these Halcurias anemones are azoox they do require regular feeding every day. Anyways, this is just suppose to be an eye candy post and we’d love to see a setup with these Halcurias anemones as the center piece. Keep reading for more pictures.
