Is this normal for my bubble tip

I noticed today that some of the tentacles on my green bubble tip are kind of shrunk and deformed. It seems healthy otherwise. Just wondering if this was normal

it usually happens if something makes that area mad. Like a clown nipping at it. Or you bumping it.

Mine was like that before I had clowns and I never touched her. She was on the left side of the tank for 4 yrs before I had clowns in the tank with her.

Deflating is a sign of sickness or stress. So its not normal.

No it's not always mine would be all bubbley one week and the other week not have any bubbles. And the first time I saw it happen I freaked out and contacted my uncle who is a marine zoologist and studies anemones and other inverts all over the world and turns out she was fine. All my parms where fine and lighting and water flow was good too. She is now 11 years old and is 12" around and lives in a 400 gallon tank she was raised in 280 gallon for 10 years. So unless she is closing up on herself he does not have to worry yet.

Deflating and losing its bubbles are two different things.

Edit: he definitely doesn't have to worry. If the whole anemone was deflated, then its a problem. But one section is different.

Mine was fully and she still is some days or weeks. Like I said if she is acting normal and eating than I would not worry to much. Heck at one point mine looked like a LTA she just did not have bubbles. Just watch her and see if she moves or refuses to eat.
