Antozoo hermit, of the order of the Corallomorfi; much colorful and much decorative one comes from the tropical Atlantic ocean, Mar of the Caribbeanses, Florida, Bahamas islands and from the Pacific ocean American, peninsula of California.
Sessile and completely lacking in a skeletal support, fixed on an inert support, which one cliff or one madrepora dead woman, by means of a small adhesive disc said foot.

Much similar one, like aspect, to the pertaining to the order of the Discosomidi Discosoma Sp., Rhodactis sp. as well as that they come commonly it indicates to you like ring of conjunction between the two orders.
In the part of the short cylindrical body that is found in opposite position to the foot it opens the boccale opening, encircled from a carnoso disc of large dimensions, of extremely variable color: yellow, viola, green or ocher, covered from two crowns of tentacles, those of the crown devout near oral R-all'.apertura is small and conical, those devout distant much devout large, bulbosi and is often ramificati.


However all the tentacles of the periorale disc cannot ritrarsi, to the contrary of many other Antozoi, in the Mesoglea.
Less sturdy of similar the Discosomidi the other invertebrates, sessili adapted enough to the Aquarius of barrier in cohabitation with all and not, and of average or small fish largeness, but not with Balistidi or Cantigaster.
It prefers to be arranged in a strongly illuminated place, with linear fluorescent lamps of light of temperature of 10.000K. and beyond or also with lamps HQI.

Ermatipico, draws its maintenance exclusively from the alghe simbionti, Zooxantelle, than prolificano abundantly in the carnoso disc around boccale R-all'.apertura; for this reason, in Aquarius, it remains delicate rather and than difficult breeding.
Antozoo enough resistant and easy to acclimatize itself, does not have particular requirements as far as the chemical and physical values of the water that must be filtered and be only very aereata.

They are however always advisable partial changes with sifonatura of the bottom and regular oligoelement additions and bioelementi.
For all these reasons would not only have to be present in the Aquarius of invertebrates of the principiante but in that one in that one of devout an expert acquariofilo.
