    anenome sucked into power head and cloudy water

    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.
    just keep swimming, just keep swimming. i need to be reminded of this from time to time.

    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!!!


    Nothing Good ever happens fast in a reef....patience! ( I need to work on this one! ) .

    Having a saltwater tank without corals is like a flower garden with just sticks

    125 gal reef built in with sps, lps softies and a school of chromis, a yellow tang, a very personable lawn mower blenny and a very old perc.

    72 bowfront...new build...

    10 gal fish only (qt) with a mean tomato clown that eats fingers ( adopted out ) and an old sargent major
    10 gal nano with a pr of gold striped maroons that were exiled from the 125 for tearing up the landscaping and creating avalanches!
    300 gal inside Koi pond
    1500 plus gallon outside Koi pond.... I was born under the sign of Piscies... what can I say??!! Love those fishes!!
