Haddon's Carpet Anemone off of Negros Island, PI.

Haddon's Carpet Anemone off of Negros Island, Philippines.  This anemone is host to Saddleback Clownfish (Amphiprion polymnus) and sometimes it is shared with Clark's Clownfish (Amphiprion clarkii).  Haddon's Carpet Anemone is always found with its foot buried in the sand.  It is best to have a 4 to 6 inch (10 to 15 cm) deep sand bed in the aquarium if you want to keep this species.
