by Robert (Bob) Fenner

Anemone problem Hello Bob Just wondering about this problem I have here, I purchase this anemone about 3 weeks ago and it looked great and yellow but now it seem it lost tentacles and looks pale any Ideas what it can be all the water test are good. Here are two picks a before and after. <Have seen this sort of thing all too many times... Anemone health decline resultant from: 1) Rough collection, 2) Poor lighting, water quality, lack of feeding, other transit trauma... 3) Same in the hands/care of the retailers, wholesalers, aquarists... typically low, inadequate light/ing... Being dyed; dye wearing off.. Please read through ALL the Anemone articles and FAQs files posted on WWM, starting here: http://www.wetwebmedia.com/marine/inverts/cnidaria/anthozoa/anemones.htm You will know. Bob Fenner>
