is it true that if the base is torn (even a little bit) by removing the anemone that it will die?
we tried removing a condi from our tank, and during the removal process the foot tore and only a small section of the foot remained in the tank. it has been a few months and the condi has competely regrown itself. go figure.
on another note, a friend of mine did not have the best of luck with anemones and in the learning process went through a few of them. the ones that didnt survive unfortunately had similar symptoms of yours, i.e not attaching and spitting out food. however you never know so keep researching and good luck!
