    they do it from time to time don't worry. they do a "water change" where they shrivel right up to virtually nothing then suck fresh water back in. what ever you do don't attempt to poke it, move it touch it e.t.c. just leave it be
    it looks like it's been on the move aswel from the pics?

    Today one of the clownfish is possibly trying to host anemone, but the anemone is staying small. Is this normal? IMG_20170328_100934614.jpg IMG_20170328_100934614.jpg

    Looks that way Dawn Big Thumbs Up If so the Nem should settle in even better as the clown will provide some nourishment (food and poop) in return for a home :w00t:

    Yes they can be a bit rough at first but it is a good sized nem so it should be fine. As said it will now have the added bonus of geeting free food :)
