Picture of the sad anemone

I was just bragging on what a nice little home the clown has when now..............The anemone is looking ruffed up

This stinks........ I hope it will be ok. First is the bubble now...........
Second pick is the one in hiding.

What makes you think there is something wrong? You can see better than we can and can watch it's behavior. Right now, I wouldn't worry. Anemones about once a day or every other day will draw up and look like death for a few minutes. This is normally a sign that they are expelling wastes or getting ready to. How long has it been drawn up?

The one that is darker moved down. I think to get away. The bubble is in the same spot has not moved.

Reason I asked is because they shrivel up when they move and mine has been moving for years now

The cinnamon clown has gotten mean since it made the anemone its home. If I put my hand in the tank for anything now it will attack me.

You bet they are pretty rough in defending their home. All a clown is is a glorified damsel. In temprement anyway

I can chase him off and he will turn around and bite me again. We may be having fish and chips for lunch tomorrow.
