I have had this rock covered in Green Star Polyps for something like 3 months now. Awesome piece, numerous featherdustes in it, just gorgeous. Today I am looking at it from the right side, and I notice some slime rising off of it from the left side. I go around to the left and see a big (relatively) anenome sticking out of the rock!!!! The disk was about the size of a thumb tacks head, pink and green flecks in the disk with a big mouth. The tentacles were clear as glass.
Of coarse it was killing all the polyps around it. So...I gave it a squirt of Joe's Juice and it closed up...cripes sake, the body and foot were the size of a pencil eraser if you pulled it out of the pencil.
I'm just amazed this pretty large (at least the biggest I have ever seen) aptasia was there all this time and I just now decided to pop it's head out.

Crap!!! I turned my PH's back on and it kicked up the joes juice. I think some must have floated onto my BTA...It's not looking so hot. I think It's gonna die. It's all shrunken up and the mouth is open. Just when I thought it was gonna pull through from the bleaching. It actually ate some silverside on Monday. Now I'm bummed.
Anenome seems to be better...maybe the jose juice just irritated it. Keeping my fingers crossed.
