Instead of removing him could you just buy a larger nem? I am going to the LFS this evening to see if they have any larger ones then the one I have and maybe that will help. I am hoping....

i could, but i already have this one in my care. i'll just grow this one. on top of beating up anemones, he (the maroon) also likes to throw around my corals too. i think a guy like him is better off in someone's "fish only" system.

True. Big Mama (Clarki Clown) she is sometimes rough on GBTA but so far she has not messed with any of the corals but she bites the hermit crabs shells as they come near the gbta. If she is being to rough on him is that why his tips will not make a bubble?

i don't know the answer to the bubble question. i don't think it's "smushed" though. it could very easily move from that spot, but it doesn't.

when my BTA eats and hes got food he almost folds in on himself and looks like he has no tenticles at all then a few minutes later he slowly re-opens himself up.

As for no bubbles, my BTA has bubbles in the morning and at night but during the day he can look stringy with no bubbles, they come and go you just have to watch and see how he does during different times of the day.
