The Amazing Bubble Tip Anemone and their care

THE SPAWNING 6-27-2010

THIS SPAWNING IS MY FIRST.



I WAS AMAZED AT WHAT HAPPENED THIS NIGHT AT AROUND 11 PM ON 6-27-2010

IT WAS FASCINATING TO WATCH IT HAPPEN WITH 5 ANEMONES INVOLVED IN THE

SPAWNING.


ALL OF THEM WHERE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE 75 GALLON TANK WHERE

ALL OF MY ANEMONE ARE.


I NOTICED THAT THE WATER WAS CLOUDY BEFORE I WENT TO BED AND SO TURNED ON

THE LIGHT TO SEE WHAT WAS WRONG.


TO MY SURPRISE THERE WAS 3 ANEMONES JUST STARTING TO RELEASE

THEIR EGGS. THE TANK WATER WAS CLOUDY AND HAD EGGS FLOATING AROUND

IN IT.


SO I TURNED OFF THE FILTER, POWER HEADS AND  SKIMMERS

I LEFT THE TANK TO BE STILL AND WATCHED, TAKING OVER 150 PICTURES.


I HAVE PUT HERE AS MANY AS I THOUGHT YOU WOULD FIND COOL.

INCLUDING THE TANK AT THE START OF IT ALL AND PICTURES

OF THE EGGS BEING RELEASED AND FLOATING.


I WAS ABLE TO GET AROUND 35 BABIES TO GROW FROM THESE

EGGS AND HAVE ADDED PICTURES OF THE ONES THAT ARE OUT

IN THE OPEN SO THAT  I COULD GET PICTURES OF THEM.


THEY ARE ABOUT A YEAR OLD IN THESE PICTURES.

The last two picture where taken in October and November of 2012

to show you how much they have grown.


 


I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THIS HAPPENING BEFORE IN A TANK

AND SO AM THRILLED THAT MY KIDS HONORED ME WITH THIS

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE.

ENJOY

At the beginning of 2010 my Cllarkii Clowns spawned in the tank.
Here is the mom fanning her newly laid eggs.
Here is the tank when I first turned
on the lights to see why the water was cloudy, this was around 11pm.
Eggs floating in the water.
This picture was taken in 10-2012, as you can see, they have grown a lot.
all but one of the Anemones in this picture are babies from the spawn.
Here is a picture of the whole tank, taken on 11-2012

Here is the skimmer that I ran for about an hour at 3am to help clear out the water, I dumped it 4 times in that hour, yuck
