Your friend may have aiptasias, pest anemones. I don't have any of those. Mine is a long-tentacled anemone. I did have a couple pests, but I've been diligent and it paid off, Blessed Be... they were multiplying fast.
Cindy, I think it was him because the rocks were knocked over in the area where he was, but you have one of these LTAs, you may be right. I didn't find anything else I think would have caused it, but I rebuilt the reef so that it's stable. I have to say that he's too big, so maybe when he opened up after the relocation that might have done it. Anyway, I placed and ad to try to find a new home for him, someone with a bigger tank, but no response. This was one of my "I trusted the lfs
guy" purchases" when I first got into inverts. They told me he would be fine in my tank, but they didn't tell me he would outgrow it! I know better now. Actually, I could use him as a convincing factor to get my husband to agree to a larger tank!
He was behind the rocks he's on now and there were more rocks and my anchor coral on top of that pile. The space to the right of where he is was open and he was in the sand spread out in that area. I suppose he could have been fighting with the anchors, but I'm not sure. They've gotten along up to now.
