Husbandry

Sanamyan, Sanamyan & McDaniel, 2013

Very special thanks for the first photo of Aulactinia vancouverensis to Neil McDaniel, Canada!

The anemone is named after the locality near northern Vancouver Island.

Habitat and distribution:
The species is usually found attached to small rocks or bedrock with an upright column.
Some specimens are found in crevices and partly covered by attached gravel particles, and sometimes the low-er part of column may be buried in shell hash.
This species is not widespread along the BritishColumbia coast. It is most abundant in shallow water in Weynton Passage at the north end of Johnstone Strait,
which lies between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia.
It has not been observed within the Strait of Georgia.
Typically the species is found in shallow water at depths not exceeding 5 m, but occasional
specimens were recorded to depths of 25 meters.

Tentacles:
Aulactinia vancouverensis has about 100 tentacles.
