I just put an anemone in my nano-cube and also i noticed something strange this evening after seeing Umphrey"s Mcgee at the Fox. Several of the tentacles on what appears to be the curled up underside of the anemone are looking stringy and also unhealthy. Is this a sign that my anemone is dying already. I sure hope not. Please offer some feedback or advice. Thanks so much- Court



 

 

It should be ok as my BTA curled up for a day prior to it came out, as lengthy as it showed up healthy and balanced when you bought it, acclimatize correctly and also your tank paramrters are great

 

here is a great connect

my tank is two months old. The water is 78 degrees and the sg is 1.022. Other than that, I can"t tell you also a lot around the water. Its a 12 gallon nano-cube

You should have a test kit or have actually water tested
LFS

Looks pretty bleached to me, is it actually a nice beige shade or is it bappropriate white?

 

Regardless, those "nems get pretty darn huge and all generally retained (on purpose) anemone"s will outflourish a 12g quite easily.

It looks very bleached. Return it to the LFS and also have actually them check your water quality. If you don"t even understand what problem your tank is in, why did you gain something difficult to keep?

I think you might want to take earlier the anemone and also look for something simpler to keep in a recently established reef--anemones are just ordinary difficult.

 

Also pick up some water tests to view what"s going on in your water--you"ll must test for a number of points and gaining among those marine water testing kits is the simplest means to get all kinds of tests. You might never before usage some of them, but if you need to later you already have them.

 

Knowing the parameters of your water is important for maintaining hard livestock like anemones.

It does not seem like your tank has fully cycled. Your ammonia should be at 0 and nitrites. PH is great though. They can be funky because of the addition of the anemone. Do you have any idea what they were at prior to the anemone"s addition?

 

Many human being don"t use carbon filters--they use chaeto or other macro algae in their fuge or ago of the tank (on the nanos and the like) and also live rock. The cheato absorbs nitrates from the water, or that"s just how it was described to me.

watch if can lug the anemone earlier to LFS - continue to let the tank cycle -

25% water readjust will certainly help dilute - research study, research, research -

and also many type of LFS will market you anypoint to simply make a sale

the amonia in the tank is down to 0 now

but the nitrate is still at 5 ppm

my anemone has actually moved off its perch on the rock and also is currently up versus the glass.

one point i have actually noticed ist that tbelow are far fewer whithered tentacles.

It likewise appears to have actually left a big poopy on my live rock.

this evening the clowns are swimming in it tho.

Sorry it didn"t job-related out--it"s more than likely finest to take him earlier for now though.

 

Keep trial and error your water, if you have even more inquiries later on it"s best to just post your parameters in the beginning of the thread.

Don"t try again in a couple weeks... neither your tank nor you are all set for an anemone and also I"d go so far regarding say a 12g is constantly going to be inappropriate for one, especially the big Atlantic species such as the last one you purchased.

 

I"d recommfinish you spend a few months rebrowsing aquarium values prior to you consider trying an additional one.
