Hey guys/gals its been along time since I have been on here and a lot has changed! I recently had a itch to buy a anemone and I found a beuty I thought would look great under my moonlights and it does.. My problem is I can't tell if its Dieing! It had some weird mucus coming off of it and it closes up.. I bought it 2 days ago and drip acclimated for a hr 1/2 I can give parameter readings later when family leaves..if the moonlights can't help I can switch on the day lights.. Please help :/

If i was you turn off all or your powerheads for like 30 mins and help him put it near a rock on a corner! That will help and the powerheads moves them around so thy cant set up!

You have a very sick anemone...one of the reasons that is probably feeding this issue is because it is dyed. There isn't a such thing as a bright yellow sebae. The mucus that is coming off of it is it expelling its zoo I'd assume. I'd take it back for my money back, the dye will prevent it from being able to survive since they are photosynthetic.

Some sebae info:

Smh in disgrace..aint that something,, it's amazing what lengths people will go to sell.. The store is 45 minuites away on a hit every green light day..I work 7 days a week.. I'm assuming its gunna die then? I have many other tanks do you think it would be wise of me to acclimate it to a different tank to let it "die"? If it does die will it secrete anything that can kill my livestock? Merry Christmas by the way

I've never tried to keep a dyed nem...nor have I even seen one in person. My hope is that someone will chime in with a success story...maybe that they fed it or something. But from my knowledge of them, I don't see it ending well. When an anemone dies, they will polute the tank. I would just remove it...but I would try my best to get it back to the store that sold it to me and get my money back. Just remember, nothing is that florescent in nature under normal conditions. Hope all turns out well. Merry Xmas.

Search for "dyed nem" on here. I did hear a success story of someone bringing one back to life. Good luck!
