    Keeping in mind that this is a "family" forum, and that members under legal age might be reading, what in the world are my two anemones doing? Day before yesterday the smaller one was spewing a creamy, milky fluid out of the center of it's body and today the other did the same, only in a more extensive (I can do it better than you) fashion!

    What are they doing? Was it sperm? Eggs? Bowel movement? What? Today it really ranked the water. Gonna have to do a water change tomorrow. Jeez. Hope it doesn't mean they are dieing!

    Thanks :D

    So far, your choices are taking a crap, making sweet love, or dying. I agree it could be any of these.

    Well come on now. That leaves me with the dying option. I don't want to be the one to tell him it's dying. :cry:
