My rose bubble tip anemone has done that too probably about 3 or 4 times. I just left him and next time i looked he was normal again and untwisted? so mine has always been fine i dont think its too problematic.

WTFLIP!!!! That's the first time I've seen that.... But looks like it could be splitting too.

Still no change - I have never heard of one splitting by twisting itself like this. Right now I am fearing the worst. I did find a couple other forums wherein something kind of similar took place and most folks said that the problem rectified itself like KMS907 stated but It just does not seem right to be honest...

Still searching for information on-line and have a call into the local zoo.

hows the anemone? Whenever mine has done that and i said i left it i meant left it usually overnight, so it probably does take some time for it to unwind itself

Still looks pretty bad and now some of the tentacles look like they are starting to deflate. It may have un-twisted some, but not much... I will try and post some more pics later.

Things looking up...

Well things may have righted themselves over the weekend - at least I feel a bit better about the anemone's chances for survival...



It did completely twist off - but looks healthy. It has not attached itself to anything yet but it seems to be doing fine. i'd still like to know how common this is and if it is a behavior I should expect in the future. I know that they split vertically but I still can find much information on anemones twisting at the stock...

thats crazy it twisted right off! Mine started to twist again yesterday but it was only about one twist so i untwisted it. I think mine twists because it is on the edge of the current right now so it all blows on the one side and twists it
