do anenome's poop?

i see some stuff looking like poop coming out of my anemone's mouth. i feed him some brine shrimp yesterday and i was thinking that could be it.
his color is still bright and still very sticky so i would think hes still in very good health.

Anemones can also release zooxanthellea which looks brown and stringy. Can you get a picture of it?

My guess is that if it's really long and stringy and dark brown, it was probably zooxanthellea and not waste.

do anenome's poop?

Unicellular yellow-brown (dinoflagellate) algae which live symbiotically in the gastrodermis of reef-building corals.
Basically, they are tiny plants that photosynthasize light to help provide food and build their calcium carbonate skeletons.

ok so i imagin if they lose this stuff they die?

he stoped pooing so i am guessing it poo and not zooxanthellea.
i just did a water test and every things great. the ph is a little low. but my tanks not fully mature so thats a givin.
he will be ok till ziggy gets here right? what can i do to make shure he just as healthy. hes still very sticky i just gave him a little squirt of brine shrimp.

Sounds like zoox, the change in lighting will do that. That is why I recommended starting w/ 4 hours total. You are at 7 right? I think I saw that in your other post... Stop feeding also, that is more stressful than helpful at this point.
