    very weird....all I can think is that anemones do tend to be more sensitive creatures than corals. That's very strange that it looks like it's detaching from its spot. Have you checked your parameters today?

    Everything is the same. Perfect paramaters. I have a poly filter thing in there. It turned blue. Guess that means copper?

    I have a hard time bitting in to the fact that you moved the entire contents of a 75g in to a 120g with nothing going on with your water prem's at all, other than having some beneficial bacteria established your basically starting over and something is going on. I do know the nem should be placed in an extablished tank and I would say your tank is not quite as established before the move. did you add dry or new rock when you moved the tank? You added more sand new right? Did you check for copper by chance?

    As stated. No test for copper. Washed tank out multiple times before move. Not just anemone ddying. All corals!

    When I added dry rock after my move, I noticed the dry rock started growing hair algae, no other rock had it that stuff growing on it, just the new stuff, my tank had big issues after that and I believe the dry rock leeched something. can't prove it, but it's what I think happen. I hope you get it figured, cus stuff like that happening just sucks.
