The Pink-Tip Condy or Haitian Reef Anemone is a solitary species found near Haiti in lagoons or inner reefs. It has a striking red column and long, tapering, pink-tipped tentacles that may develop a bubble-like appearance. This anemone prefers to bury its base in sand or crevices for protection and requires strong lighting in the aquarium. It can thrive with live rock and crustaceans, but it is not ideal for a reef tank with corals due to its potential to damage other anemones and corals with its stinging tentacles. It is important to avoid keeping its natural predator, the Stareye Hermit Crab of the genus Dardanus in the same tank.
Unlike other anemones, the Haitian Reef Anemone does not have a symbiotic relationship with any particular fish, and it is uncommon for any type of clownfish or damsel to reside within them.
The Haitian Reef Anemone's diet should consist of fish, mussels, shrimp, or other similar foods.
