Anemone gone missing!
Added 2 Anemone Clowns late Sunday. These the first 2 fish in a cycled tank already supporting a hammerhead (very happy!), cuc, including at least 5 small feather dusters.
Larger of the 2 clowns appeared ill but my untrained eye bought into the LFS
story that he was simply stressed. The smaller clown seems okay...I think.
Yesterday, at another LFS
, in trying to diagnose the problem with the not well clown, suggested that the clowns might have been wild captured. If so, than a host anemone might unstress the guy. I bought the anemone and, he disappeared...quickly...taking refuge in some unknown hiding place in the tank and has not been seen since!
That said, the clown was doing a death spiral this afternoon and so was removed.
Almost immediately, the new tomini tang (added last night) came out of hiding. He looks great and has a healthy appetite. The smaller clown is also eating (the dead one never did) and seems okay from what I can tell.
About the reason and urgency for this post
: where's the Anemone? Is this behavior normal? Thought they needed light? Seems the tan knew he had a sick tankmate, does the Anemone...and is he telling me the little clown is also sick?
Or, is the Anemone behaving normal? Please help.
