Anemone Question

4 little pieces of the anemone have "fallen" off for lack of a better term. They are sitting on the floor of the tank "glowing" like they are still alive. We had a temp problem about 4 days ago and lost some life, but the anemone and clowns that host it all look great. Any ideas. I don't want to lose it.

Thanks!

I`ve heard that if under stress they will split to try to save the species. Maybe because of your problem it stressed it into splitting.

Does it look healthy? It has lost about 6 pieces so far, but it doesn't look any different than it has.

The anenome itself looks pretty good. Can you give us some water test results. and the clowns are not being too rough with it are they? What type lighting do you have?

It looks to be getting worse. A bunch of the tips are being "pinched" off. Here are some pics. We lost AC this weekend and the tank got up to 90+. All we lost was one fish and a cleaner shrimp. Could this be effects from that?

It looks to be developing a new "ring" of tips. This may be common, I am very new to this.
