In order for the Rose Bubble Tip Anemone to keep its bright coloration and bulb tips, it needs strong illumination. These anemones will typically remain compact and will gain bulb tips under intense lighting. If the lighting is insufficient, they will expand their bodies to great lengths to make the most of the available light. It should be kept with a Clownfish for best results. At times, the tentacles may appear stringy; this may be due to insufficient light or the need for food.
Its diet should include chopped fish, shrimp, or worms if a clownfish is not present.
