    Are mini maxi anems good under low light to almost no light conditions? My bubble tip moved and it now cast a shadow over my mini maxi. I have tried to move it but it's very tightly secured in the rock. I have cooled down a very dull butter knife and touched the small portion of its foot but I can't get it to let go of the rock. I hasn't tried to move but I'm slightly concerned as it hasn't had light in a few days. PS the knife was very dull and I used extra caution not to harm it's foot. That portion is now back attached.

    I think the maxi mini will move if it doesn't get enough light so I wouldn't be to concerned. I'd just leave it be for now. Your bubble tip might move again as well.

    Intervening with an anemone is the worst thing you can do for it. My mini maxi prefers lots of light and little flow.

    Thanks civic, that's why I just stopped.... I though about what I was actually doing..... And just left it alone.
