Hello all,
My Tube Anemone has a few tentacles which are tangled in what appears to be a mini "branch like" structure. I assume this branch like structure was floating by, then became tangled in the Anemone tentacles, much like a tangle in ones hair in which your comb catches and becomes stuck, but the Anemone is have a a rough time getting its tentacles loose from this thing, and I don't want to interfere and make the Anemone retract, possibly causing damage pulling this branch like thing into its interior. Might anyone have a suggestion?
Much appreciation.

Hey welcome to the club. I'm willing to bet that if you just leave it alone the nem will free itself

Thanks for the welcome and also for the quick reply!! Indeed to not interfere was my first instinct, but thought I would put it out there....so thank you or the validation! This is my first time to this site, enjoying the tour so far! Cheers
