    After about a week of wandering around the tank (120 g) I found my anemone yesterday afternoon stuck (all shriveled up) on the meshed intake part of my Maxijet 1200. This morning it was not there anymore.

    readings this morning:

    Ammonia: 0
    Nitrite: 0
    Nitrate: 20

    Logic dictates that it eithered moved again or was sucked into the powerhead.

    If it was sucked into the powerhead is it too early to take readings for the above?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's never too early :) Just keep testing for about a week or so. I'm wondering why your nitrates are at 20 though? Is that because of the anemone?

    I highly doubt it ..... my nitrates have always hovered around that number for the longest time way before the anemone.

    Hard to tell exactly with these color matches but my nitrates have been consistently between 10-20. My fish are doing fine (knock on wood) so I'm not really worried about it (nitrates, that is).
