bubble tip anemone
« on: February 03, 2013, 12:41:11 PM »
I recently put a pair of yellowstripe maroon clownfish in my reef tank and they took straight to my bubble tip anemone... sometimes it seems aggressively though. Now my anemone is deflated and sometimes it's mouth is just gaping open. Every so often it does open back up normally but the clownfish don't leave it alone long enough to let it relax. My water tests perfectly. Is this really a case where the fish are just too aggressive hosting it and it's causing it to deflate?

That would be my guess. I have a small bubble tip, but my clowns don't know it is there and it is really to small for them to host to anyway.
I know some of the other members have had experience with this, so hopefully they will chime in.

I have had a GBM go thru 2 hubby's and 3 BTA. They can over live them. She is now on her 3rd hubby and hosting in a long tentacle anemone. And doing good.
Currently i have a 54 corner custom stand and hood w/EcoTech Radion Gen 2, Aqua Euro USA skimmer . Black sand and back round.
