    First merry Christmas. Just noticed My rainbow bta looks really rough. It has not moved however my rose bta has been moving for the last few hours I am guessing and is closing in on the rainbow. Should I be worried?

    I see no need to worry. They won't harm each other, I've had over a dozen in my tank and they would close up every now and then if they weren't comfortable.

    Normal until they find their 'happy' place. Were they on rock before the glass?

    My big issue isn’t them getting close. The one in the first picture is behaving very oddly. If I had a time lapse camera to set up on it you would see it is constantly contorting itself

    Ok, just saying that mine would move all the time and do weird stuff until they were happy with flow, light, etc...

    Confirm things like temp and salinity are where they should be. Maybe check ammonia too. If those all look good you can probably chalk it up to anemones being anemones :)
