Rock Flower Anemones


Recommended Posts

Just an FYI to all saltwater reefs enthusiast. Rock Flower Anemone do eat fish!!! This is my 3in Powder Blue Tang that I got a few months ago after upgrading. I had this anemone in my Pico Tank but then move it when I upgraded. This fish was awesome. It was healthy and eating very well. Today I even saw it before going out. My wife called saying "Your anemone is eating your tang!!!" I rush home and see this... The fish was beautiful and it appeared that the anemone drained all of its color and would almost completely swallow and then regurgitate. The craziest thing. My wife has about three hours of video clips. She couldn't take her eyes off it.

Sorry for your loss!  :(

 

 

In defense of the anemone though, fish can look healthy and eat well but still have serious problems and die without warning weeks or even months after it was acquired.
