    I have a condylactis anemone that just got it's tenticles sucked into one of my power heads. It trimmed off a lot of it's tenticles now they are only a few inches long but I have some quick questions? Will the cut off tenticles nuke my tank because I can't find any of them? Will the anemone be ok it's out right now but just really limp? Please help I really don't want my tank to get nuked

    I personally have my Powerheads protected, you might want to look into doing that.

    The anenome might be ok might not, I don't have much experience with them, but I have had friends that had this happen, and their anemone(s) full recovered.

    Hope this helps until someone more experience sees this :).

    I just had my nem GBTA get caught on a korolia nano Thursday (not the impeller mind you.. just the screen).. 2 small spots.. he looked ok ...then on Friday.. WOW... face down in the sand... he look so bad that I moved him to a HT.. where he died on Sat...

    After that experience, if the nem is not attacted to a rock currently I would transfer some DT water, some rock that is from the DT and a small powerhead to a 10gal or something HT until you are sure he will recover

    as mentioned above... some recover, some don't

    I dont buy into the the haveing to have the PH's screened,i have 3 nems a RBTA and a GBTA all on the same island rock in my tank,as long as you dont have a ph right next to it ure fine.thats my 2 cents

    as far as the tenticals nukeing ure tank,it all depends on how good of skimmer,flow ect. you have
