    Will have to wait and see what the bubble tip becomes but I'd suggest moving it away from the clam.

    From what I know, Bubbletips like crevices in the rock and the nook between your clam's foot and the rock makes an attractive home for the bta. You can either try removing the clam from the rock (very gently mind! Don't tear the foot!) or try to move the bta (which looks difficult at that angle and its size).
    Just be warned that your bta will try to find another nook to live in once you have moved its current nesting spot.

    Is that the same clam in both pics?
    Anemone still small so not an issue yet. Might still walk and find a better crevice. As tekkengal mentioned, they do prefer to have their foot secured in a hole.

    Went for a walk. Hopefully just to another crevice somewhere. Too small to cause major disruptions in your tank if it's been eaten by the powerheads but if in doubt, do a big water change. Any change in the water? Bit murky? If the nennie is still MIA this evening do ammonia, if high assume KIA and do large WC.
