Earlier this week I was cleaning out some culpera off my live rock and I gently moved my rock on its side and I'm not sure what happened between then and now... But the last couple of days I've notice my nem look horrid. Never seen it so small. Usually it takes up most of the rock work... Does it look like it's turning inside out? I'm worried that it will nuke everything... This is day four since I've cleaned. The only thing I can think of is that there's something lodged into its mouth but I'd figure it would come out after a day or two. So far the tentacles don't look shriveled up but still... This is concerning... Especially bc it's usually huge...

It's fine. Do a water change. If it has something in it's mouth, it will expel it eventually.

It looks green... So it may have just been a piece of the calupera. Thanks for the tip. I'll get on that water change tonight.

Going to redo the plumbing on the tank... Excuse the funky drawing... But whatcha guys think.... ??? Right now it's mostly flexible tubing... Want to convert some of the flex tube to PVC schedule 40... Thoughts and or feedback would be appreciated.

Would I have to change my return pump as well?

I don't know how loud that standpipe with the holes in it will be. Everything else looks ok, though I would probably just keep the returns close to the surface and point them down or drill a siphon break just below the water surface rather than rely on a check valve. They tend to fail in marine systems due to all sorts of funky stuff being able to grow in total darkness.
Why would you need to change your return pump?

Wasn't sure if the flow rate on the pipes would change or stay the same if I was going schedule 40... The standpipe is already there. I'm not sure on the diameter of it... I'll have to measure it once I get home.

Aquarium tear down time!!! Not looking forward to it. I should have started this the first time around but I was to eager to get it started. Douching everything with elbow grease and vinegar... Going to seriously go through every nook and crany to get this tank free from apstasia! I would rinse the sand and put it in the tank again but I don't know if those monsters will show up again. I don't want to risk it either. Plan on switching to LED's once tax season comes along or I save up a few grand. Lol. Figure I can have my QT tank set up with LED's and it would be easier to transition from the QT tank to the display tank. It's going to be a lot of work. Temporary my fish will end up in a 20 gallon for now. So far 2 clowns and three damsels. One damsel is getting evicted. He bites me every time I put my hand in the tank. Gerrr... So I think I may sell the rock on Craigslist after it's been fully dried out. Figure it would dry out in California pretty quickly especially after hitting 90's and 100's here. Not sure what to do with my corals... Total mess.. Glad I'm not giving up this hobby but ive came close to it because of this aptasia. :/
