Rose anemone sucked in filter?!?

Hey, the last time i checked on my rose anemone it was on a rock attached at the top of the aquarium, fine. That was when i left to go to my dads house (on friday night) and i came home right now and my rose anemone was almost 2/3 stuck in the filter intake pipe. I dont kno how he could have becasue barley anything can fit through it and algea was covering it mostly. I turned off the filter to stop the intake to see if he could mabye crawl out. His foot was attached on a rock with next to it. I cant untagle him without damaging him further. Any advice? I havnt had many success storys with anemones sadly. my clown has gone through 2. i Might just go to fowlr even tho i dont have any coral.....anymore. Any suggestions on if he will live or if i should do a water change (ect.)

Can't say rather he'll make it or not. You'd may be shocked at what they can live through. It will depend on the damage though. Any way you can remove the intake tube and place it in a QT tank to see if it comes out or not?

Mine got sucked into the prefilter on a PH. I thought it was a goner. That was several months ago. It's still doing fine. I have foam covers over all my PH intakes now. So there is certainly a chance it could be ok.

I would suggest a nice water change and do extra ones to keep the water pristine til the anemone heals. They are pretty resilient critters but that will also depend on their enviroment. Good luck, I hope it pulls through. Don't give up.
