Really sorry to hear the news dave! At least the fish and your BTA are ok. Hope it gets better soon! So nothing else happened recently that could have caused the crash? Any dosing or new additions? Could the rfa have gotten sucked into the powerhead?

It really sounds like an anemone went for a walk into the powerhead. Cloudy water, stringy stuff through the powerhead, more sensitive corals die off from parameters.

Hey guys,

No dosing, although I have been thinking about it. I found the RFA but it doesn't look like it has been chewed up...just shrunken and small. The only thing that was done is used joe's juice on some aiptasia I found in the tank.

But joes juice and aiptaia-x are made to be a neutral substance in the tank besides to glass anemone. I've even had other anemone accidentally consume some with little effect, to return to normal days later. Not the culprit and is still be eying up that anemone.

You are right Sniper. I was doing some more checking and was looking at the pump and found some pieces of the RFA in it. also found a piece in the back of the tank as well.

Didn't think it was the JJ, been sing it for a while with no issues. Just don't understand why he done that. He had stayed in the same spot I placed him when I got him, was eating good and showing great color.

True, does make me feel better lol. But, so this doesn't happen again I am going to be making changes shortly to make sure this doesn't happen again. Once my zoa's, Zenia and GSP start to open up again then I will get more corals. Oh and snails....don't have a single one left now lol.

RIGHT! Hahaha.

I never thought they could wipe out a tank that quick! I have heard of them doing that but even when I had my 10g nano and my condy too a trip to the powerhead and got chewed up....this didn't happen.
