I have a @3" across bubble anemone and a metallic hammer in my 50 gallon. The hammer has been in there for at least a month almost two. and the anemone has been in the tank over a month. They look healthy most of the time occasionally on certain days one or both will be more withdrawn than normal. But they come back looking just fine the next day (this happens especially at night.) But today they are both showing huge bubbles on there bodies (see pics) The red bubble is completely withdrawn and only a bubble is showing. Is this a reason for concern? And if so what is too be done? Thank you for your time.
Pools are great for holding water.

I had this happen once on some hammer. I am not sure was caused it but when the bubble finaly popped it killed the head. The rest of the colony was fine and was happy except that one head.

my hammer has done this a couple of times.  when I reported the problem, I was told that it was growth.  my hammer is currently 4 times as big as it was when I bought it.
