ok help on something eating my anenome?

Post by grawlfang on Tue 10 Apr 2012, 8:45 am

Ok I just got a new BIG Sebae anemone last week (was 4-5 inches in diameter when extended) and Matt even saw its size, but something in my tank seems to be picking on it I had to remove it this morning and move it to my nano tank as it had one side all tore up yesterday it was small and all closed up. Wife thinks its the Tang would that be possible. I hope it survives there is nothing fish or invert wise in the nano just corals.

Kevin, do you have Clowns in your tank? Mrs Y has had problems in the past where her clowns attacked an anemone , literally ripping it down to 50% of it's original size. You'll need to keep an eye on the Sebae, as should it die it messes up your tank water big time, she had to strip her filter down on her JBJ, and did about 3 water changes in 3 days to remove all the slush and slime.
Fingers crossed your makes it.

The tang would be my last bet... being a herbivore. Especially considering the anemones ability to kill fish.

I tried researching it and found very few results. Not much can eat an anemone because of how well they can defend themselves when they are healthy. Those that did suggest that something was eating it in other forums ended up having water quality or light intensity issues.

I have checked my water quality and everything is good, no ammonia, nitrates, salinity .025, PH 8.2, calcium 480-500, temp 78-80. and I have the power compacts.

I have moved him to the nano with factory power compacts and chemi pure elite, protein skimmer, water quality the same just warmer temp 80-84 normally

I have a small maroon clown, but it doesn't appear to be interested in any of the anemone's
