Advice needed-BTA attached itself to sea cucumber

Recommended Posts


Any advice about how to remove a bubble tip anemone from a sea cucumber? It must have attached itself when the cuc was against its rock.

I did try to remove it, but didn’t budge, and I don’t want to hurt either.

I’d love suggestions about how to tempt the BTA to another, non-living spot! I did try putting them in a glass in the tank, but John (the cuc) just crawled out.

Maybe try peeling the edge of the foot of the anemone off the cucumber with a credit card, very easy and genlte like. You can also try aiming a power head at it and it may release after being blasted a bit.
