    Came home and my 'nems mouth was wide open so I thought I'd try feeding it mysis shrimp for the first time. The tentacles kind of 'grabbed' the shrimp and pulled it in and I believe now it's slowly sucking the shrimp into its mouth. Does this look normal? :p

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    I would not concerned. Rule one is that anemones change shape.

    I would become concerned if the anemone were not footed, had a gapping oral opening or did not fully inflate for more then two days.
