  • Feeding Anemone

    I tossed in some NLS pellets for my 'nem and decided to take some pictures.

    Grabbing the food:



    Munching on the food:


    See the tentacles inside the body?

          I think it is pretty cool lol. Their tentacles are really sticky and pull things towards the mouth. Normally I feed a bit of a silverside and touch it at the very tip of one of the tentacles. Then all the other tentacles rush over to grab it lol.

            That's awesome!

            You should take a video of it being fed a silverside.

                    Lol a video would be boring. They don't move that fast really.

                    Tell him an established one lol. I'm being very careful about adding 'nems since my last try with them. They are pretty finicky.

                        Here's a video of feeding. This time I fed silversides so it isn't nearly as fun as when I feed mysis. Mysis will be fed next week so I'm sure I'll get a video then.

                          That was really cool to watch, thanks When you fed the first one it looked so excited it couldn't get its own tentacles out of its way
