Hey guys I’ve got a M doreensis, it had an unfortunate encounter with the wavemaker. The foot was wedged into the grid of the power head and I needed to make an incision to get it out. I cut about 1/8th of the foot off to free the anemone. That was about 2 months ago. The nem has almost completely recovered with the exception of the foot situation.

it seems that a mini anemone is growing out of the foot where I made the cut? Anyone experienced this?

My question now is, will this actually form a complete anemone and then detach, or what is going to happen next?

Pics attached.

On a secondary note, anyone kept carpet anemones and sand anemones together? It’s 1000L tank (250 or so gallons) and the carpet seems to “chase” the sand anemone. That’s why caused the wavemaker incident in the first place. According to some of the sources on here they shouldn’t be having beef, especially so far apart, so what gives? Last night the carpet crossed the entire length of the tank to settle right beneath where the sand anemone is suspended in a healing tub.

Please do! It was badly damaged. The plate part that the tentacles grow out of was badly torn, the foot was obviously cut off, there was flesh all over the place. About 2 weeks later all the damage to the body was healed up, about a week later the foot seemed to “heal”, now some time later there’s an anemone growing out of it lol.

Its foot doesn’t seem to stick to anything though. So that’s a concern.

This is super interesting. I'm curious if a mouth would form where the new tentacles are forming? And if it does...would it cause a split? Following
