Condy ate my lionfish!

We recently bought a lionfish for our 125g tank. He was in there for 2 weeks. When I came home from work today he was missing. But there seems to be dark object in the long base of our condy anemone! Is this normal?! The lion was just as big if not bigger than the anemone!

Same thing happen yesterday to my clown fish I came home and only the head was sticking out of my condy anemone. I ask the same question and they said it rear but it could happen. I tripped out when I seen it, I took it out of his mouth and flushed him. Now I'm scared I have two condy anemones in my 21g.

It is possible if the anemone can get a hold of the fish.

Yeah. I was not happy. We have other fish in the tank that the condy doesnt mess with. So I never thought it would be an issue.

Should we take the anemone out? Will the waste that he secretes be bad on the other fish? I don't want to lose anymore fish

Condi's are killers,you need to get rid of them.Get a BTA if you insist on trying to keep an anemone .

I hate anemones. Pain in the [moderator edit]. Many corals look like anemones and are much less trouble. Just my opinion.

You really need to decide for sure whether you are doing a Reef or FWLR .Lion fish can be problem in reef,really limits so much livestock and corals you could have.
