anemone

My anemones have decided they want to move around and
my long tentacle has found my bubbletip and now they have both
closed up, have they killed each other? I had them at each end of
the tank. For some reason they have started moving.

The bubble tip has opened back up nicely. I think it is sitting in front of LT.
They have been stationary for weeks until this weekend. I have lost a sea hare
and I am so scared it is dead in there. I have moved rocks, changed carbon,
still no sign. I had a shrimp, pygmy angel and foxface to die this wkend. I hope
I'm not crashing. I have done everything but dig up the sand and stir up the
nitrates. 36 gal tank.

If the sea hare died in there and you can't get it out, all you can do is run ALOT of GAC and heavy water changes to clean the toxins out. Since you had a mass die off this past weekend, I would definitely chalk it up to the sea hare nuking your tank and that it is dead in there somewhere.

I know I'll never buy another one! I stirred up everything
moving rocks and I hate to even check my nitrates now.
You think he is under the sand maybe. Maybe my fancy
nass snail will eat it :0) they eat everything else. What
is a good fish to replace my pygmy angel and foxface.
I need some color in there! All my coral are beige. 36 gal
I'll be changing water and carbon now. My boy coral
banded shrimp died and he was of a mated pair, she'll
prob croak now from depression. She is pregnant all the time.

lol I forgot to say this earlier, chances are the reason your nem's are moving is because of the toxins in the water at the moment. I'm not sure how toxic the sea hare is to them, but if they die, they will nuke your tank as well. Keep a close eye on them.

My LT anemone is looking real bad. all shriveled up. Have had it
for months doing great. The BT won't eat but don't look too bad.
When do I know for sure I need to pull them out. This is making
me sick. I had such a nice collection and they are dropping one
every other day or say. This tank nuking is bad business.... I hate
sea hares. Still no sign of that @!#$^%

I have no clue. My LTA died a couple of weeks ago I think due to
dropping a good sized rock on it and moving it around so much
looking for a sea hare which I still have not found??! Do not buy
one of those, they are toxic if they ink or die due to trauma.
I learned after I bought the cute little thing If you find out let
me know. All I have now are 2 Bubble Tips. Don't know how they
reproduce either. Sorry!!
