Not having another Anemone to do a transplant from, how would I take a donor sample and transport it home without losing the Zooxanthellae? Just in a ziplock full of tank water?

I think keeping it from drying out ans use it as soon as you get home would be the thing to do. Make sure you thaw the food in tank water and the temp of the food is at tank temperature to keep the zooxanthellae from getting temperature and salinity shock.

OK, great thanks. If my new BTA doesn't color up after a month or two I'll look into this further. Thanks Minh.

What is this "phycopure" of which you speak? I hope it isn't anything like "phocomelia".

I doubt that any zooxanthellae will remain a live in a bottle for very long, if they are alive to begin with.
