View Full Version : Nem picks bad place to live.

I never bought these but somehow I ended up with three green bubble tips.
They must of came in on a piece of rock that had an other coral on it that I got from a fellow reefer.
So two picked not bad spots but the third one decided to live in my candy cane.
They were all about the size of a dime when they showed up, but are now getting bigger.
Here is a picture of the third one.
Not the best picture but it is in a bad spot to shoot.

Yup, majano. Pest anemones. Pretty, but still pests.

Looks like green bubble tip to me, they spread in my tank like crazy as well but I've gotten into the habit of treating them like pests and injecting with vinegar, pretty effective.

Had me fooled too, I would have guessed BTA. Your majano has more bubble tips than my GBTAs! They haven't had bubbly tips for years.... long stringy beasts that are getting so large, they're killing some of my coral.
