We have a pink-tipped anemone at our business. I am not the one who takes care of the two tanks we have, however, I am trying to help find out what would cause it to move up the side of the tank, almost to the top. It almost looks as if it is upside down. We are not sure that there is even a problem. But if it is, then we would like to resolve it as quickly as possible. Thank you for any help that you could give us.

    They move all over the place. Not an issue.

I have a question. I have an established acquarium (10 years) I had 5 fish a tomato clown, a royal gamma, a firey hawk and 2 tangs. All but the tangs I have had for 4 or 5 years. I purchased a Pink Tipped Anemone about 2 weeks ago. I put it in my 55 gallon tank with the rest of my fish. Now all of my fish are dead. The only survivors are my crabs and one chocolate chip star fish. Was the presence of the anemone in the tank the reason my fish died? I had my water tested before I purchased the anemone and it was good. I am very upset over the loss of my livestock. Also, what can I get that can survive with the anemone? Thank you

    The water from the lfs could've had something inside of it, or the anemone was very stressed and your chem. levels went sky high. could've been a number of things really.

    Unless your fish were eaten by your anemone it didn't kill them so some thing else is responsible, I hope you know never to add water from your transport bag to your tank from your local pet shops as they may contain copper or other harmful elements that can have disastrous effects to a reef system. Have you had your water tested since the incident?

    When pink tip anemone's die, they let off a ton of ammonia, essentially like an ammonia bomb. If you noticed your anemone stressed and starting to die, if would be smart to remove it before you have a major problem. High levels of ammonia all the sudden that killed your fish, to me, would point to the anemone.
