One of my newest anemones that I've added to the tank, a 12" GBTA from Green Marine, seems to be having some issues. Some of the tentacles are coming off, but I notice they aren't bitten off, they are like 1/2 of a tentacle that is fully healed and inflated with water. The tentacles on this anemone are about 8" which I've heard means it is hungry. I also always see it trying to eat its tentacles. The employee at Green Marine said it was being fed 1 time every 1 and 1/2 weeks which sounds like a good feeding schedule to me. It is a healthy anemone, no signs of bleaching or any sickness, but I'm just curious why this is happening. After I saw it trying to eat its tentacles I've started to feed it a large amount of large mysis shrimp ever 5 days or so and it is still trying to eat its tentacles! Again, he looks very healthy and doesn't seem to be bleaching or anything. He has only deflated 1 time in the week that I've had him to expel waste, but other than that he looks very healthy. Another thing I've noticed is that my clownfish won't leave their 10" GBTA or 14" GBTA and don't want to even go near this new one. All of the other anemones in my tank are doing great as they are all eating, not losing any color, and expelling waste regularly. What is this 12" GBTA trying to tell me? Is he hungry? Is he trying to just shorten his tentacles? He seems to love the spot he is in. He hasn't moved since I put him in the tank and he hasn't lost any color. He is right in the middle of the right side of the tank and he measures from about 2/5 of the way up the tank (column) to 4/5 of the way up the tank (tip of tentacles). What's going on? Lighting and flow doesn't seem to be a problem. I'll be upgrading to 150w MH-HQI before the April 2010 meeting so since the anemones probably do need more light to be 100% happy, they'll get it. Water parameters look fine. pH 8.3, Salinity 1.024-1.026, Ammonia, Nitrates, and Nitrites undetectable, temperature 78-80 from night to day. Any information would help. BTW I'm not upset with my purchase and I don't view the anemone and sick, I'm just curious what his behavior is cause by. Thanks!
