Anemone Success
Doing what it takes to keep Anemones healthy long-term

by Robert (Bob) Fenner

What is it? (Odd Blob (no not me) next to a new TWA anemone) Robert, Thanks for the info. on the neon wrasse and other info on all your other articles. Though I've read through most of your recent writings on anemones I've come across something you will have to help me with . Recently after purchasing a "Haitian Anemone" (white with pink tips on a orange stalk), <Oh, have recently redone the "Anemones of the Caribbean" section: http://www.wetwebmedia.com/twaanemones.htm> placing into my year old reef tank on cured and developing live rock, I noticed a clear ball 1" in diameter lying next to the base of my new arrival. The currents in the tank caused it to travel down to the floor of the tank where it has been for a month or so now. All chemical readings are where they should be and the livestock and other invertebrates are not messing with it. What is it? And what should I do with it? Thanks again for the info in advance. <I do like these sorts of mysteries... this ball might be a "waste product" from the anemone itself (they make these sorts of things and eject them from their mouth/anus periodically)... might be a colonial algae that is bleached out/dead... could be a sponge remnant... At any length, though I do not know what this is, I would gingerly net or siphon it out and toss it... just to be sure and avoid pollution. Bob Fenner> Sincerely
