Look for healthy specimens at the fish store. Im always looking for signs of stress, parasites, disease etc. And doing this you will save some money.
I agree and always do ..Ive only ever looked up care a.d what was needed to sustain a healthy nem. One thing i learned mouth open equals no good. I never cared to have one my clowns host a ceramic teapot .. just thought he was good size with nice color... apparently i was wrong.

I actually think its kinda cool they host a teapot lol, but if this nem doesn't make it try again. Maybe go with a different fish store. But before you do make sure your water is very pristine. Read more about nems also. Its all apart of the learning process if we loose something. Learn from mistakes, move forward and try again. Im sure you'll succeed, after all you got the support of AA

Just keep us posted. If it goes to far south youll need to pull it...but i dont see the need to currently. Mine took over a week to adjust.

If you see that it looks like it is falling apart, pull it immediately.

Well, it's def not good, but if it was inflated, that's a good sign. Just keep a close eye on it for deterioration.
Good luck with it J.
