Hope my zoas don't die. :/ very interesting how my nem moved. Do they float to move? Or they crawl?

Most just crawl until they find their happy place. I've heard the long tentacle varied attach and usually stay in one spot a little better. But no guarantees.

The "crawl" around the tank, and can also let go to float wherever the current takes them.

That sucks my zoas looked like they were being ironed by my nem. They looked so flat now. I like to keep this nem but I don't want it stinking my other corals :/

Very tough call, very beautiful nems. Hopefully it will find a good spot. I was going to get the tri colored one, but heard they could start stinging my corals. So no nem for me yet.

I have 2 nems, and neither has stung any other corals, but I guess I just got lucky.

Nems only move if the water conditions and lighting is not correct. Under the right conditions they never move. I have 5 in a mixed reef and have never had a problem in 5 years.
