bubble tip

  1. General Reef Discussion
    A quick question about bubble tips. I picked one up a few days ago and it opened up nicely then proceeded to move into a cave. It's been there for a couple days. The LFS guy told me that they will attach to a crag in the rockwork but this ones in a cave out of the light and closed up. Does...

    Hey guys! Need help with identifying this anemone. The reefer that I got it from said that it's a bubble tip anemone. Not really quite sure if it is since I can't see a pic from the net that looks like it. Thanks! :banana:

    I got my bubble tip anemone about a week ago and he seems to open up for a while, shrink in, move than open up again. Now he is under a rock and has this odd white "film" over where I think his mouth is. Is this normal? Is it waste? He is in a 40 gal tank. All parameters are good, PH was a bit...

    Quick question. We have 2 BTAs that have been doing great. Fed them shrimp pieces yesterday and he was acting just fine. Acted a little weird this morning then he was fine again. NOW he is all deflated with this weird white string around it (yet its tank mate is looking totally normal). I...

    Pick up this green tip bubble tip today for $20. Whole body is tan, no tears anywhere, mouth closed, had bubbles at the lfs, and they had it for a month. Acclimated it for an hour, it wandered all around this rock island all evening and has picked under this ledge in the shade for now. My...

    Gerbers Saltwarer Warehouse had 50% off on its Rosetips. Normally they go 100 dollars or more, but at 49.99, I snatched one up! This is the first anemone I had in the 120 gallon. I haven't had one since I got a common white for my 46, which did well at first then mysteriously vanished into the...

    I have a 90g aquarium with 2x RBTA and 1x GBTA. One RBTA is around 8", the other is about 4"-5". The GBTA is about 5". I am planning on buying a pair of percs and I want to get them a H. Crispa for them to be hosted in. In a 90g will the bubble tip anemones fight with the H. Crispa? I have two...

    While doing some tank maintance I noticed 3 small pylops have turned up. They are each about a cm long with a pink orange foot and clear/green heads. I watched one of them crawl across my sand bed leading me to think that they are baby nems. I'm still pretty new to nem reproduction so I wanted a...

    Okay, I purchased an anemone the other day and it went and placed itself in a rock. The anemone then burrowed its foot inside the crack of a rock. The one above I don't mind because it still visible and it's bigger. This rose bubble tip was purchased yesterday. When I added it to...

    Is it possible to overfeed a bubble tip? It eats every time I put food in its tentacles.

    Finally got a new bubble tip anenome in my tank and added a Maroon Clown 4 it. LFS suggested the clown for my anenome, and live aquaria too but a friend who worked at one of those aquarium ship sites (saltwaterfish.com) says he won't. Granted it's only been like 5 days and I think the...

    I've seen some posts recently about why exactly this symbiosis occurs, so this is the abstract from a peer-reviewed article published in the Journal of Marine and Freshwater Behaviour and Physiology. The title of the paper is "Effects of anemonefish on giant sea anemones: Ammonium uptake...

    I am quite new to Marine keeping. I have a Bubble Tip Anemone that looked almost dead when it arrived. Seemed to pick up over night, but then shrank to a tiny size with a gaping mouth. I stuffed in some frozen brine shrimp and it blossomed again. I have now been feeding it every other day. My...

    My bubble-tip had been in tip-top shape for several months. He moved around occasionally, but has finally settled in on a spot. He hasn't moved in 6 months. He has been an upstanding member of my tank for 8 months now. The past month, however, he has seemed to be on a slide, and I cannot...

    I'm new to the reef tank world and I have know idea how to tell if my anemone is dead or dying. Can anyone tell me if I should take it out or not. I don't want to waste $60 on just a hunch.
