    Never happened to me but got this from another site:

    "Should an anemone get sucked into a pump or powerhead,
    just unplug the pump and don't touch. If it hasn't been damaged by the impellor it may slowly pull itself out."

    Hopefully, it'll be fine, good luck...

    Watch your fish for signs of stress, run carbon and / or poly now if you have some & aren't running it. Set your skimmer wetter than normal and test the water parameters.

    Start mixing water for a partial as well and do one as soon as you can. It's extremely likely you'll need to do one.

    Test the water params frequently & if you have actinics look for glowing bits in the water column, sand bed, & rocks that may be shredded pieces of the anemone. That can clue you into how bad it got chopped up. It's by no means a sure method, just an idea.

    If the fish start panting, look listless or otherwise act 'wierd' they're having problems. You need to dilute the poison & remove it with carbon. Fludize the carbon if you have a phosban reactor or similar.

    Hope it works out.
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.
