Help! Rock Flower Anemone

Recommended Posts

tgrover35

Please help me determine what is going on with my rock flower anemone. He has been in the tank for a couple weeks and he seems to have been doing fine. He has eaten some brine shrimp and otherwise has been just anchored to a rock. He now appears to have his mouth open and has a white string of something coming from it. It would seem that he may be dying, but I’m not sure why or if that’s right. Should I try to let him ride it out or remove him?

White matter is normally guts. But from the pic it looks more brown to me and that would be normal poop.

How much is typical to feed these guys? I’ve target fed him frozen brine a few times in two weeks

Not sure. You can overfeed anemones though. A few times in two weeks is nothing to worry about though. I would guess you can feed it two or three times a week with no issues.

I feed my group a couple of mysis shrimp once a week. You actually don't have to feed them at all, although they tend to grow at a faster rate if you do. I suggest you use mysis shrimp or LRS food- brine shrimp don't really have that much nutritional value.
