The Sebae anemone requires a high lighting intensity in the marine tank it inhabits. A recommendation of 250 watt to 400 watt halide lighting or equivalent is nescessary for the heath of the Heteractis crispa.
The Sebae Anemone may move around in your aquarium till it finds a suitable place to settle down on sand or on a rock. It requires good water quality and the addition of iodine to the water as a dietary supplement.
The Sebae Anemone derives its nutrition mainly through photosynthesis which is performed by zooxanthellae, an acellular photosynthetic alga living symbiotically within the Anemone. Heteractis crispa is Carnivorous in feeding habit and filter feeds a few times per week, when open. It eats Mysis Shrimp, the meaty tidbits of shrimp and silversides, fish, krill, mussels, zooplankton and phytoplankton.
