Do a major water change. Take the fish out of that cup b/c it's very stressful and clowns don't even host condy anemones anyway. Hosting it won't help.

Just put the clownfish back in the tank. This is not a good opportunity for it to host it. The anemone can (if it hasn't already) release toxins that can harm fish. That's what the PWC was for. Might be beneficial to put more carbon in to absorb the toxins.

That's not a true statement. Clowns will host a condy, I have pics in my thread to prove it.... But he's right, the condy can nuke the tank. If there are pieces left, get them out.

Hmm I read that clowns don't host them except for some occasions. Guess I misread something. Sorry for the misleading info. Hope everything turns out all right.

I heard the exact same thing. I got the condy and my maroon flocked to it. Harassed it so much I had to move it. Was not a happy condy... Lol..

As for the nem, if its chopped up I would flush it. I have had this happen to. Not worth taking a chance of it killing everything. Jmo...
