Snake lock Anemone
Habitat

Generally found on the sea bed but sometimes in rock pools provided they remain underwater. They prefer well lit locations.

Wild Diet

Its a filter feeder that feeds on small fish and organisms in the water which become trapped on its sticky tentacles. It can also behave as a predator by using its long tentacles to actively search for food such as crustaceans.

Behaviour

In addition to filter feeding, they are able to produce their own food by photosynthesis, which accounts for their preference for well lit habitats.

Breeding

They reproduce by 'longitudinal fission' that's to say, they split into two identical halves. The process can take between 10 minutes to 3 hours.
