I know its going to die, I just feel so bad. And the juvenile garibaldi is not being nice to it either so its chances are not so high (and I know that the garibaldi is not reef safe,but once again no choice in the matter). The skunk clown is still trying to host it, and it just seems so cruel. Thank you everybody for validating my suspicion. Hopefully we get power back on (and gasoline becomes available), so that these guys can go back to their proper lives, and I can downgrade to a few heart attacks that involve only three tank inhabitants.

Garibaldi damsels are California's state fish. You'll see a bunch of them in La Jolla, CA. They need cold water so 60-77 F. Surprised the LFS didn't have a generator or something to save their whole business. Just curious why they give those things to you? I mean are you a close friend with the owner or something?

Keep the water changes going as best you can. You have a lot of filter feeders, so if the LFS has some reef chili or marine snow, feed a bit of that before water changes. Hope you've power back soon at the LFS.

No generator, the owner has had the place for about 8 months and business is slow, so a generator to power the whole place was not exactly affordable. We borrowed a small generator but it was limited in how much we could power. And it was not given for me to keep, it was given to me to keep them alive. I will be gladly giving them back ASAP. I have been waking up every couple of hours during the night to make sure that some catastrophe is not occurring. Apparently, some anemones like to move a lot during the night.

Nems only move if the conditions are not good. Stable parameters, flow and lighting.

The dying anemone now looks normal. All puffed up and back to normal. How weird. Target fed everyone today with phytoplankton.
