My LTA who has been content for quite some time decided to make his way to a powerhead... I powered it off, and hoping he'll make his way out of it... All parameters are good, maybe he was chasing my clowns... (I'm joking)

Update: He seems to be slowly peeling his own way off, doesn't look like any parts of him caught the impeller so that has me hopeful. The only thing I'm thinking might be an issue is the temperature swings in my tank. It goes from 78.5 degrees at night to 80 degrees during the day. (Thanks, glass tops) Hopefully that's not what made him restless. I just put 2 Picasso's in the tank yesterday, but they hadn't gone near the nem yet.

If the foot isn't damaged it has a chance. It looks bleached though. How long have you had it and what is your lighting?

It's not bleached, I've had him for a few months, my wife's cell phone really did a strange job of interpreting it. The anemone is green, with florescent green tips, with a carrot-orange, almost red foot. The purplish and translucent effect in the pictures doesn't exist in person.

I have 480 watts of LEDs though...

Mine got stuck on the intake of HOB filter, using sponge filter now and tuelle
wrapped around the power heads. I figure the tuelle will keep it's feet or head from getting sliced up.

Well, the lights are off, but he doesn't seem to be closing up, puking, or falling apart. Maybe he'll make it. I'll definitely wrap my powerheads this weekend.

That's great news :-)

Mine went in head first. I did power off the HOB and slowly
removed him, lost a tentacle or 2.

Got mine bleached and it's still struggling after 1.5 months.
It's losing those zooxanthae, barely glowly under blue light now :-(
