Guess the bubbletip has a rather weak sting. I would think it would be in the shrimps best health interest to not get to caught up in being around the anenome.

i did feed the anemone today so im thinking that the anemone was full and didnt feel like eating the shrimp and the shrimp was probably picking up some small pieces of shrimp. this bubble tip is not agressive at all iv toughed it thiking i would have been stung and it hasnt stung me yet, the tang and coral beauty know too stay way though.
