I moved my tank yesterday, and this morning I realized my carpet anemone has bubbles inside it causing some of it to float up towards the top of the tank like a ballon. Has anyone seen this before?

Sorry my pics always upload sideways.


aaaaaaaaaaaaaannd.... I'm broke

Have you been feeding it? I find that hobbyists feed their anemones much more than needed.
When moved was it removed from the water causing stress? It may be stressed with the move and food inside is not digesting but decomposing creating gases.
Poke it on top with a sharp object to release the gas bubble.

Aloha,

Regarding pics, turn off auto rotation and/or rotate the phone 90 degrees clockwise from how you've been doing it.
