    im thinking it was a heater mishap..when i got home yesterday the water was hot. everything else is ok. i had the heater set to 83, but i beleive my lights may have given the water the extra boost. now with that said, it was a fairly new anemone and it recently had a few of its tentacles ripped off by a powerhead. so i think it may have been a combination of everything. im pretty pissed. it was a perfect specimen at 14". it will be a while before i host another anemone.

    That's too bad I'm sorry. If you've been having some chemical warefare in there (iodine/carbon etc) that's most probably the cause. They need a very stable enviroment with little changes in enviroment, that's why they are recommended for very mature tanks.

    Personally I'd also be waiting for some time before getting another.

    Aquaman--I'm sorry to hear about it--that was an amazing anenome. Things like that definitely set ya back a bit. I feel bad for ya, a loss like that sux.
    I've noticed that raising kids & fish are similar: Patience & dedication really pays off!
