will the anemone die?
guys newbie here i have an anemone that is settled to one place. then one day this anemone that i bought recently move also next to the anemone that is been settled to that place. in short they stay in one place.. my question is that should i move the other one to prevent sting to each other what are the signs of dying and sting wounds if ever? im concerned to my recent anemone cause its a beautiful anemone compare to the other one... but i like them both cause they differ to each other... i dont want them to die so help me guys.. they are both different species of anemone both are bubble anemone but different in colors one is a green one is maroon with some with spots on it..

they will move eventually they won't fight over a spot but..... its probably that spot has the best conditions for them. what size tank do you have how much rock?

got a ten gallons... a gift from my uncle... i have a lot of rocks. but i taught that if they get close to each other they might get sting to each other cuz they are both bubbles but different in colors and size.

hmmm they should leave each other alone they wont hurt eachother too bad. they will be fine.

how do i know if an anemone is dying ? i recently bought an anemone and when i saw it from the pet shop he spreads his tentacles but now he is always close like a tomato or when he spreads his tentacles they're too little not like when i saw it in the pt shop and he always stays in a very deep location of the aquarium ? my tank is a 75 gallon tank

nice question bro your anemone looks like mine but my anemone died because it was suck up by the filter. and i have 3 new anemones but after 2 days of nice and bloom anemone. right now most of the time anemone is close and rarely i saw spread his bubble fingers again.. what is the problem?
