To get a little more scientific, those DOC's are both attracted to, and repelled by water...so the millions of tiny bubbles in a skimmer capture them since the walls of the bubbles are both water and air. The DOC's stick to them like a magnet, and then when the bubble bursts in the collection cup, the DOC's are left in the cup.
That is a much better explination

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

You will have a HARD time keeping an anemone alive. Many of my fish are called "difficult to keep for any length of time" - and they've all done just fine. My PBT is 9 months old now and is healthier and more active than ever.

When they say anemones are tough to keep, they mean it. I had one last about 3-4 weeks, stayed in the same spot and appeared to be doing great. Then it decided to start roaming around the tank and I knew it was in trouble. It was dead 3 days later and not a single water parameter had changed. My tank is closing in on 1 year old so I have 2 anemones now - a huge white sebae and a white-tipped LT. If these die I won't be buying any more anemones for a long time.

We'll be fighting in the streets with our children at our feet, and the morals that they worshipped will be gone.

And the men who spurred us on sit in judgment of all wrong, they decide and the shotgun sings the song.
