Just be careful with no light, they can bleach easily in treatment. I wonder if it will color up darker or go purple.

Looks good. It's holding its shape nicely. Fingers and toes crossed.

This has to be one of the more rare anemones that have crossed the forums in a while. I'm incredibly nervous for the survival of this anemone, and I don't even have any vested interest in it! Best of luck, will be following this one closely.

it's around 10", but I think it can stretch a couple more inches under better lighting and flow

Stuff that gets expelled

I believe that was is getting expelled its waste that is being sucked in a out of the anemone during collection and shipping.

When we treat i believe we are treating bad bacteria that has developed in the anemones gut from collection and shipping.

+1. I look forward to these updates!

The mouth looks closed and tighter than previous days. The posture still looks good. Looks like there is some bleaching but that is to be expected with treatment.

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

Day 3. lights just turned on. looks like no deflation. a little black expel still. mouth getting tighter.






getting a little ahead of myself.. I'm looking for placement spots in my tank. I'd prefer it stay on the left side. However that ugly BTA is taking all the spots. that thing is huge.. 15+ inches. so I stacked a bunch of TBS live rocks on the corner. ugly rockscape for now, but best for the Gig. it can climb and stay at any light level. no powerhead on left side beside my Sea Swirl. If it stays on the left, I plan to buy a second Panta Rhei pump. The green gig loves the SS + Panta Rhei.

sorry for all blues. only Reefbrites on right now



left side is stacked with rocks


Red Haddoni must have heard there's a new favorites in town. Moved to front center spot and stayed there. It had been hiding for 2 years..

Nice, the tentacles appear to be coloring up. Or at least the lighting and photos make it seem that way! When you do water changes, are you replacing with newly mixed water, or conditioned water from your DT?

Gorgeous red haddoni btw, I would not have let a gem like that simply hide in my tank for 2 years!

That's where I saw the seller post the nem. If it was east coast I woulda drove to it and bought it. I didn't want to be the guy that killed the nem in shipping.

Lookin good m0nkie! I can't wait to see this thing settled in.

hmm... this morning the nem was fine. 100% water change. new Cipro. lights off.

came home and the nem is balled up. turned on the lights and it started opening up. It's still tightly attached to the tank. Mouth seems closed still. I don't see much expel. just a little black chunk. Mostly some light brown films coming off of their foot now.

I've had gigs ball up and they were fine afterwards. It was a rare occurrence and only happened in QT so at the time attributed it to the nem trying to expel waste or dead zoox (as if it was constipated). AFterwards the nems were fine.

Sloughing on the foot is completely normal.

Hopefully at this point, your gig is fully back to normal.
