My maroon clown in the last week has started acting funny, I've had it for about a year and it's always loved hangin out in my anemone which I got around the same time. For some reason now it spends most of its time hiding away from the anemone and has pulled food out of it the last three times I tried to feed it.
Preempting some questions:
I have fed the Maroon clown before I tried to feed the anemone each time.
Over the last month or so the clown hasn't really been retrieving food for the anemone so I have had to feed it myself
I feed it lance fish and occasionally 'marine mix' food which is frozen shrimp etc
I haven't checked my water quality recently but have been performing regular pwc
and my corals all look like they're ok so I don't suspect it's that.
I had a chat with some staff at my lfs
they reckon its irreversible and my clown will keep doing it until the anemone is starving and won't let go of the food! that can't be good!
I don't have much of an idea when it comes to marine tanks so id be grateful to see what you all think.
