So, I was the owner of a hand-me-down condy anemone.
I got him from a friend, that was tired of dealing with him, and figured, "hey, I have the room, sock it to me!"
Had him for 6 days, til I get home last night, and the whole thing (minus about 50% of his stump body) is sucked up into my filter intake.
I quickly unplug my filter, and detach the part he was stuck in, and try to wave it around in the water, and see if he comes free.
I gently try to pry him out, but can't get a good grip because he's slimey. Tried pushing his arms through the filter slots from the inside no luck.
Spent about 30 mins total trying to dislodge a crippled invert from my filter with no luck.
So, there's nothing left for me to do that put him out of his misery (assuming he's still alive...no part of him at all is moving).
So I pulled him off of there (leaving some parts of him inside the tube), and flushed him.
I tell my friend I got him from about it, and he says "what a moron! he did the same thing in my tank...that's why I gave him away.."
Anyone else ever have an anemone sucked up by their filter?
I would feel pity for it, but he's the one that actually crawled over there, and got stuck...in two seperate aquariums...
Survival of the fittest for the win!
Condy Anemone for the loss!
