+1 I've never done an in depth scientific behavioral study on anemones. So my theory is just as it sounds. A theory not cold hard facts

Just an update on the anemone, he has moved up towards the top of my rock work again. I just hope he sticks around there for the next week while I'm out of town. Thanks for all the info.

This is the theory you are speaking of? They do not have brains. They don't think, about ANYTHING. They have responses, like a brain dead person or even a plant. That's all.

I had a single rose bubble tip that has been in the same spot for a year but over that time has become 4 anemones, because of a single ocellaris clown.
Octopus is an invertebrate just like an anemone and they do not have a brain either. So are you saying that octopus also just move with an involuntary response?

Octopus have a tight group of nerve cells that acts as a brain. Anemones do not exhibit this "intelligence".

Slightly higher concentration than anemones, but still not like cephalopods.

So the other 2 have less nerve cells and so just being dumber than the octopus.
