General Information
Common Name Sebae Pink/Purple Anemone, Sho
Family Stichodactylidae
Latin Name Heteractis Crispa

The Malu Anemone is a less common form of the Sebae Anemones Its short tentacles may have magenta tips, but these are not always present.

As its name implies, the Malu Anemone is a delicate anemone, and easily damaged. It can be difficult to acclimate, so its care should only be attempted by the most experienced aquarists. It prefers to have a sandy substrate allowing its base to be hidden from sight. It should not be placed on a rock.

It requires strong lighting, moderate water flow, 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 Clarki Clown, Amphiprion clarki, can help it acclimate to the tank and ensure its general well being. It is a moderately difficult anemone to care for, but once acclimated, it can be very hardy.

It requires a diet of fish, worms, clams, shrimp, and other meaty foods once a week.
