Last night in chat, I talked about how my Blue Tang had big spots on it, and that my curlique anemone disappeared. Well even though things were somewhat normal except for a PH
drop .4 points to 7.8, and the Alk
a bit low, I did a water change last night with water that I had mixed for a couple of days. Things were back to normal with the water change.. Still no sign of the CQ anemone. Well, today, I come home to find the Carpet anemone torn to shreds. And man do they make a mess...Very stringy...anyways, all of my fish were on the bottom of the tank except for the Clown (doing badly right now) and the Goby, and the Blennie. All of the Green Chromis were on the bottom asphyxiated. The Blue Tang? well, I don't need to tell you what I found, it's pretty obvious.
The changes I made to the tank in the past few day are:
None to the water.
Recent additions, 2 star fish.
1- Brown Serpent
1- Brown Brittle Star
I brought them home on Monday.
I have not seen any other critters in the tank except for the Blue Legged Hermits, snails, and an Emerald Crab.
I have never read it, but would the brittle star or the serpent star be eating or trying to eat the anemones?
With what I believe to be the anemones toxins in the water, all of the parameters of the water are the same as they were after the water change. Hmm so what in the ward could be bold enough to eat an anemone?
