    Horror of horrors! - My nennie got caught in a circultaion pump. I removed him with great difficulty about 2 hours ago. Now he just lays upside down and wont correct himself. Is this normal. What should I do ?

    u should have turned the pump off and let him work his way out. do waters changes and run activated carbon. he doesnt look to badly damaged from the power head.

    ok the damage is done but now you need to watch water parameters to ensure no infection enters the anemone and the other livestock are kept from waterchemistry spikes etc.. carbon and regular water changes are going to be a must.. also make provision so that this doesnt happen again. having the mistake happen and learning from it is cool leaving it and it happening a second time is neglegence and asking for trouble.. good luck..

    from the pics i can see some heavy coarse crushed coral that will lead to high levels of no3 in long run, try getting finer crushed coral for the display tank.
