All my fish have gone mad...

So my wife called me at work yesterday said my clownfish was swimming funny. When I got home my green bubble anemone had ate him. By morning I looked in the tank and the anemone had my flame angel in its mouth and tonight my yellow tang. My fish have gone suicidal on me. Also have a royal gramma missing but I think my lunar wrasse ate him. Lunars belly looked suspiciously full tonight. Either my Anemone is now a hunter or my fish are suicidal. Any advice?

In less than two days. Insane. On the upside the anemone is well fed. On the down side I can't pull it out without messing up all my rock work. It made home inside a cave and I'd have to pull a pretty large rock from my tank to remove it.

Where did you buy that anemone? The Little Fish Shop of Horrors?!!! You're name isn't Seymour by chance is it? Lol

All I know is if my bta ate that many fish, and I couldn't get it out, its next meal might be a syringe of kalkwasser paste. Do u have a pic of the killer nem?

I'll take a pic and post it but I still haven't gotten it out. I don't want to move the rock out I'm afraid it will mess with my water quality. It's probably a 30+lb rock. Then bubble made home in a nice cave which is sweet cause all you can see are the tentacles and not the base but sucks cause I can't remove it. Lol. Still debating.

Put somthing over it. That will restrict the light to the nem and it will have to move.

I turned the lights off on its side of the tank yesterday hoping that would work. We will see how long it can suffer

Blast a powerhead at it. That should make it mad and it will move.
