I'd say it is a carpet nem. Looks like mine...just pretty unhappy. It came in a shipment of snails? That is the best hitchhiker ever IMO. Hope your lighting can support it.

Proper flow and lighting. Anemones should be under a minimum of 6 bulb T5HO imo for them to thrive. It will help to feed it a small piece of food once weekly, I give mine a small piece of mysis shrimp no bigger than its mouth when I do feed mine. If it isn't happy in that spot, it'll move. They are nems that like to be in the sandbed, so I'd expect it to move into it and attach its foot onto a rock nearby.

Thanks again! I'm gonna do what I can. It wasn't something I was supposed to get, I don't know if my nano tank can support it, & I've only been doin this marine tank thing for about 2 months. Wish me luck!

That's true. I'd love to keep it, but I don't think I have the skill or enough space. Thanks!

Just got an email from unnamed source that sent it to me accidentally. They swear its a rock nem. Since I didn't order it & they [moderator edit] up by sticking it in my box o snails, how can they be so sure? It looks a lot more like a carpet to me. Is there an easy way to tell the difference?
