help!
my nennie decided to walk into my power head!
from what i have seen only a very small part of his foot is damaged. he is still sticking to things with the tenticles that arent damaged(half of them)

how do i go about fixing this mess??? think he will make it thru??
he is very deflated. but not torn in anyway. and my clowns keep pestering him.
:angry:

Nothing you can do other than make sure he is happy and protected from the Powerheads.

Normally if they walking around means he is not happy with lighting

Or the water conditions are bad, well they will be now, you will need some drastic water changes, then make sure you keep the quality up to scratch, otherwise the nem will be liable to infection.

I use either Cal-C vita which come in convenient 1000 mg fizz tabs...
The other one I use is ascorbix which come in 500mg tablets.
These I just add to my return chamber...

cal c vita worked for me so you can try it

6x 39w=234w in total......if that is a herectis macnifica then i'll say 300 on the minimum( but thats only my opinion)

He seemed to be doing fine until you redid your scaping.
Do some wc like weeman said and keep us posted.

cover your powerheads asap( you dont want to wakeup with the milkeyway in your tank

add some pics

How deep is your tank?
The hight from the lights make a diff as well...

My heteractis has been very happy under 3 54 watt T5's, but he is only like 15 cm away from them...
He has not moved an inch in the last 4 months...
