Normal behavior of an Atlantic Condylactis Anemone
Reefing Madness is probabaly going to answer this...can anyone direct me to a useful site for care of this thing? I get so much contradicting info..I need to hear it from someone with experience. I'm trying to find out if there is something wrong if they turn bubbly then shrink up... I don't know if this is how they move and its normal. Also I am concerned about feeding time. I have successfully fed it every other day and both times its like it throws it back up. Both times I had fed it a small-med sized shrimp but I cut it up in smaller pieces. A couple hours after the first feeding it threw up or lost one of the pieced and I assumed the piece I fed it was too big. The second feeding I made the pieces smaller and it still threw up a piece. now I am assuming it was regurgitated or does their feces come out kind of whole..the shrimp was mushed up a little.
Habit & Habitat:
i would feed less often and a smaller portion. i would also attempt to feed it other things from time to time while feeding my other fish. squirt food at its mouth or try half of a silverside. i would start with once every 1-2 weeks. the clear spit up is from excess food/ its waste.
i think i have heard of condys getting ahold of peoples fish.. not 100% sure
all anems will need a reef enviroment, so keep that in mind. proper lighting, alk, mag and ca levels, and flow.
Thanks for the info Reef & Onefish...very useful. I should have the right parameters..I may cool down my tank a bit for it...or even to mock nature.
