    Sad Day....

    My Blood Red e. quadricolor anemone decided to go for a stroll last night, right down the throat of a korallia pump.

    now, this took some effort, and is akin to a suicide wish... i had put craft plastic all around the 'intakes' of the koralia, but he decided to walk right up the out-current hole, and once he got into the impeller well... ughhh.

    i will either end up w/ no anemone whatsoever (most likely) or i will have a few very tiny mouths to feed in the near future.

    either way.. such a sad day, then end of the most beautiful anemone i have ever seen.

    here is a picture of another clone (picture is not so great) (spawned off the mother colony at the same time)

    I'm very sorry. I've never seen a BTA like that before.

    My condolences! How is the tank doing? I mean, did it cloud up the tank and have a chain reaction?

    Sorry about your suicidal anemone; but, I dont really understand how it would be able get chopped up from the outward current valve ?? Did it fight its way through the strong turbulence and then force its way into the impeller? I see this happening through the intake but not the out Maybe Im reading it wrong or maybe you have Hulk of the anemone world
