Scientific Name: Condylactis gigantea
Reef Compatibility: Yes
Minimum Tank Size: 20 gal
Max Size: 6"
Notes: The Condy Anemone requires strong light and should never be purchased if a good lighting system is not in place. It will do well in an aquarium with live rock and several crustaceans. Although a Condy requires a reef environment, it is not the best suited for the reef aquarium. The Condy Anemone moves around the tank and has a sting that can inflict grave damage to other anemones and corals. Do not include its natural predator, the large Red-Leg/Stareye Hermit Crab of the genus Dardanus.
Unlike other anemones, the Condy Anemone does not have a relationship with any particular fish, and it is rare for any type of clownfish or damsel to reside within them.
The diet should include feedings of fish, mussels, shrimp, or other foods of this type.
