Have you seen the base/foot of this guy before and after the little "accident"?

Yes, the base was good before and it seems okay now. He stayed "squatted" for a day, so I couldn't see it, but today I can. It looks okay. I offered him a little bite of table shrimp today and he snatched it up and wrapped his tentacles around it as he always does. I THINK that's a good sign?

I had a BTA get sucked into a intake a month ago. It lost about 5-6 tentacles and it is still around.

That just goes to show that your water conditions must be very good. It has to be for them to make it after that.

My LTA got sucked into a powerhead a few months ago, he was wrapped around it "face first." That sucked! I turned off the powerheads and he unwound himself over time. I have all my intakes now covered with nylon (stockings from wal-mart).

I usually have no ammonia, no nitrites, nitrates usually around 15 (between 10 and 20) ph at 8.2 (although it was low, so I added buffer) but generally the readings are usually really good. I'm working on getting the nitrates down more and the phosphates.

The anemone is "stretched up" again today, as opposed to his continued squat for the last couple days. All of his tentacles are inflated and he seems good. Can't wait for tomorrow to feed him again. Today, he snatched up little pieces of mysis when I fed the fish, so I think he's pulling through this HUGE mistake that his horrible mommy made!
