    Hi Guys

    My dad got a purple based anemone from somewhere pretty little thing( but still dont like them they freak me out)

    it been in the tank for almost three weeks now. seems to be doing well.
    last week i tried to feed it a dead fish. all of the sudden it realeased the fish and the water in the tank was turning milky. i Immediately did a water change... all the inhabitance seemed to be alright.
    i want to know why it did that and why the water turned milky,
    would my fish be at risk if it happens again

    thanks

    This sounds like a spawning event! Doing the water change was a good choice. I also recommend running some fresh carbon.

    WOW Zuna - that sounds like a very interesting happening. In the 4 years I have kept anemone's I have never seen this happening. Can you possibly please try and get pictures for us, of the anemone?

    I for one, would just like to assess the anemone's health visually please?
