I lost my anenome !

Recommended Posts

Hie all,

 

I just got on this forum one day too late. After installing a power head in my 20G, I found my sebae anenome stuck in it!!! I mean how the heck did he get up there???

 

Anyways, it was one of those undergravel filter powerheads and he got stuck in the suction piece. I am deeply saddened.

 

I hope to avoid these kinds of situation in the future.

Anemones getting caught in powerheads is unfortunately all too common. Yet another reason why they should not be kept in captivity...:|

I hope you got all of it out. They melt and be the cause of a major crash. Also, nothing spells worse than a dead anemone. OK, other things do but anemone death is right up there with the worst of them.

You need to place a drilled PVC pipe along the intake of all powerheads to prevent an anemone from being shredded. Thats what I have done.

Wow, what a disregard for life and IMO the hobby...you don't deserve to smoke white widow. Stick to crack, only crackheads would do something so ignorant.

Argh. You could have sold it to someone who would have appreciated it.
