Terrible Advice Tuesdays: Your bubble tip anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor) doesn’t have bubbles on its tips because:
– your lighting isn’t strong enough
– your lighting is too strong
– you don’t have enough flow
– you have too much flow
– your tank is too new
– there is no clownfish hosting it in
– there is a clownfish hosting in it
The rest of the story: No one knows what makes bubble tip anemones bubble up or not. If you have a bubble tip anemone that loses its bubbles in your tank, there is nothing you can do to bring its bubbles back.
While I agree that a fully bubbled bubble tip anemone is quite the eye candy, you also have no reason to get concerned if your bubble tip won’t bubble up. The lack or presence of bubbles in the tentacles of the anemone do not mean anything about the health of the animal.Browse the Store! Questions?
