Species Name: Actinodentron cf. plumosum

Authority: Haddon, 1898

Common Name: Pinnate/Hells Fire/Tree Anemone

Range: Indo-Pacific Ocean

Natural Environment: Found on sandy and rubble covered bottoms in coral reefs

Aquarium Suitability: Has a temperature range of 72 to 82°F (22 - 27°C). A singly living burrowing anemone that looks somewhat like soft coral. When threatened it retracts into the sand. Rarely collected for the trade, and since it has a potent toxin/sting, its a fish eater. In fact, has a very painful sting if touched, so keep your hands away! Better left in the wild.
