View Full Version : Anemone Stinging Toadstool

09/23/2017, 02:40 PM
I have a bubble tip anemone that is sharing rocks with a very large Toadstool Mushroom Leather Coral. I am wondering if the anemone needs to be removed immediately or if they can co-exist. Any information is greatly appreciated!

I was fragging it earlier so it isn't 100% happy right now :')

UPDATE: I tried to get the anenome out by using my fingernails and I thought I was getting the feet off, I was actually tearing the anenome. Not a lot, but could this potentially nuke my tank?! Yes I know I'm stupid but I really did not want one of my anemones killing one of my prized corals.

I dont know if this helps at all but I've had a lta that's pretty big living right by a toadstool and they've gotten along fine. The anemone touches the toadstool every once and awhile but doesn't seem to hurt it.

I have a LTA that's much larger than a toadstool I keep. The LTA touches the toadstool and I haven't seen any issues

thanks for all of your responses! The anenome is fine. I just put a large coral frag stone on top of the whole and he moved :)

in the future, i always use an ice cube on the foot and a butter knife, works every time unless their foot is deep in a hole.
