I just got my first anemone :)

Recommended Posts

I just got a small pair of bubble tip anemones and I put em in my tank 3-4 days ago.

They won't eat, is it because they need to settle before and feel comfortable or is it because they are babies (3 cm)?

I'd be very happy if you gave me some information on keeping them, thanks!

Unfortunately I just spotted a kind of centimetre long half orange half black/purple/blue kind of worm or somethings, is it a parasite, the anemones are still small and they retract if i ouch them, so i couldn't take that animal out. i am going to try to take a picture but probably you won't be able to recognise it since my phone's camera sucks!

- thanks for the comments and sorry that i didn't check earlier.

Yeah after I saw the comment on deflated tentacle it made a lot more sense. 

I thought it was crawling around and u couldn’t catch it. Lol

Looks like a bristle worm to me, but the nem looks fine.

 

They do funny stuff all the time, quite fascinating
