    Woke up for work and noticed the tank was cloudy. Then seen my bubble tip sucked into the power head and cut up from the blade and in pieces. Did a water change and cleared up the tank before going to work and got rid of the anenome since it was dead. My question is how with this affect my 2 anenome crabs and clown fish. Its a 75 Gallon mixed tank...

    they should be fine, they dont have to have the anemone to survive. just replace when tank is stable again.

    Yup
    They will not be affected but check your water parameters in the next few days, you don't want any piece of the anemone rott in there and cause a spike in ammonia.

    sorry about the nem.

    Probably a good idea to change out the GAC.

    Sorry about your anemone. That's a bummer! Did you vac the sand and blast the rocks and crevices when you did the water change?? Lots of debris could settle in that and start an ammonia spike. Good luck!!!
