Yea high nitrite is going to be far worse for them than a large water change. I really hope that they make it

oh me too. the two losses we've had already are heart breaking enough. i've taken the fish, anemone and corals out of the display tank and put them in a smaller quarantine tank that's already well established and has been running for awhile now, all seem much happier for the time being, until we can get this under control. thanks again!

Well from that pic its white no anemone ever should be white, being white means its bleached and lost its symbiotic photosynthetic algae that it uses for nutrition, being under t8s i expect this, it wont last much longer.. nitrite killed the fish, the tank was not established enough to take an influx in the bioload all at once, it would have been better for both tanks to be concurrently running and slowly moving over liveztock

i coulnd't agree with you more on that one. if it had of been possible to keep both up and running, we would have. however, limited space meant one had to go immediately.
all the water, filters, etc were directly from the 125 gallon, so we didn't start from scratch which is better then nothing.

in the photo the white on the anemone isn't it's colouring, it was edited with a low grade photo editor and unfortunately doesn't look as healthy as it is. it's still growing and eating, has it's green colour, and is actually doing quite well. like i said, it's under T5's not T8's as i had previously thought.

thank you though.

I know its not what you want to hear but your nem is bleached badly. Low grade photo editor/ Hum then whys the Clown normal color? You cant keep a nem under a 2 bulb T5. You dont want to hear it but when it dies, it will probably take your tank down rest of the way.
