magnifica anemone lost some testicles from overflow how do i get them back faster?

would feeding it accelerate their repair process? however every time i feed it pieces of shrimp my clowns always toss it off the anemone. is the anemone suppose to react faster and stronger than my clowns?

Feeding should help in its recovery. My male clownfish does that too ( purpose of cleaning the anemone) but my female would pick the food up again and feed it back to the anemone. So I watch the anemone eat when I feed it, making sure it ate the food completely.

Well, first off, might want to edit typo...

We need pics and info, normally most don't feed until nem settles, and should not need to feed at all if healthy.

Are you seeing signs of deflation?

How long have you had it? Clowns shouldn’t really be able to steal food from a healthy mag very easily.

Lol, I was thinking man, that poor anemone!
I'm sure I'd shrivel a bit too!

How many testicles does your anemone have! Lost a couple! Wowsers.

I would feed the clowns with something else while feeding the anemone to keep them preoccupied. Try using smaller food pieces, even small mysis so that it can eat that faster than the clowns can grab.

Post pics so we can see what's going on, hopefully it's not deflation you are seeing from bacterial infection.

It may have lost its testicles but at least the clown is willing to toss it off when there is food around - not all bad news!

Healthy anemones will start new tentacles, not testicles, in a few days.
