He is on the back of a live rock and I dont get to see him. Dont quadricolor anem's like alot of light? Back there he isnt getting a whole lot of light. I am really nervous now i read on another thread that you shouldnt have anem's in a fairly new tank, thinking bout flushing them as much as I would hate too. They seem to be doing well though. Eating good and look good. Do they die suddenly or will I notice a decline before he would kick the bucket? I dont want him to die in the tank. The tank is only 3 months oldsquid said:There are several ways, but...why? is he close to something he shouldn't be?
The best way I know is to point a power head at him and he will move if he doesn't like it. Kinda like the stuborn child, do something he doesn't like and he'll move
Hehe....first of all, I did do research on it and I read nothing about not putting it in a young tank, about the only thing I read was that it was the hardiest of anem's. I feed it with mush from a turkey baster every 2 or 3 days. It looks real healthy.thefatman said:in my opinion it's too early of a tank for an anemone..
i also think you should do some research on it.. first, you cant make an anemone go where you want it to. it goes where it likes. move it and it will still go where it wants. keep moving it and you only cause it stress and it dies.
it went wherever it is because it likes that spot. it may change its mind and move someplace else. but it wont change its mind for you, and you wont change its mind.
please do not flush it. it wasnt yanked from its home in the ocean carried half way around the world in a plastic bag, to be bought by someone without the knowledge to care for it, only to be flushed down the toilet..
there are plenty of poeple that would be willing to take it or buy it. not to mention returning it to the lfs..
i REALLY hope this message doesnt sound crabby, just hoping to point you in the right direction to becoming a successfull reefer.
and btw welcome to trt
I hate to but in but is the anemones happiness covered under the warrantee? So like if I take him outta the water thats bad right?squid said:Ya know, I posted how to get them to move, and was totally ignored. pointing the powerhead in their direction, making them NOT like where they are at and moving on their on WORKS. Are all jar heads and rangers deaf? lol
At the shop, that's how we would get them to move...this is how many of our customers got them to move. The anemonie will only stay where it is happy...well, make it unhappy and it will move again.
