Anemone & corals
1 Attachment(s)
Recently I had added 2 peppermint shrimp to my 8 month old fluval flex 13.5 gal. For about 2 weeks they kept walking in my corals and my corals would never open up. Yesturday I did a watwr change and added a bubble tip anemone to the tank at fist it attached to the rock and ingulfed itself. I carefully peeled it off and moved its spot but joe it wonít attach to a rock. Did I kill it by stressing it out to much? The corals still Havenít opened up and now I am wondering if thereís an issue with my water because my reef lobster as well as 2 snails died. Phosphate, Amonia are all good. Nitrate at 20 ppm. Also the anemone has a slime like goo coming off.Attachment 322546

If none of your corals are open and your nem looks like that, you likely have an issue. What are your full parameters:

That doesnít look like a bubble tip to me. Iíve never seen one with that color foot. Like flaxon said water Params may help diagnose an issue. Peeling it off the rock is a bad idea. You could have damaged the foot. Nems will move around until they find a happy spot.
