  • Anemone Rescue/Pity Purchase

    Just a log of how my pity purchase is doing. I want to see how it changes over the weeks/months to come.

    How it looks when I got it:


    A day later:

      I can't seem to find the first thread where you introduced this guy but did you ever say why it was a rescue/pity purchase?

        Yeah, it is looking a bit better. I'm slightly peeved. I'm thinking it might be a bubbletip and not a haddoni. I wanted a haddoni!

        Sean, it was in my Nano Reef thread . Here is why and the pictures of when I picked it up.

        That's a Haddoni Anemone. It was left outside an LFS store overnight apparently and the owner found it in the morning. I went in that evening and he told me about it so I walked over and looked and the poor thing looked awful! He said I could have it for $20 since he probably wouldn't be able to care for it himself (I muttered something about getting it for free and he laughed lol). But now I've brought it home and am going to try and nurse it back to health. $20 is a fraction of what you'd normally pay for a Haddoni anemone.

              I think were missing a line in there, it was left at the store by a person overnight and the owner found it in the morning at the store upon opening.

                Well I half hope that's the case... otherwise i still hate that owner...

                Wait that cae out wrong... I would hope the owner wasn't dumb enough to leave a shipment outside however I could understand it if a customer forgot her however I don't understand how though...

                  LOL don't start on me mister! Besides, I'm still a SW noob AND this 'nem is in terrible condition so I'm allowed to make ID mistakes.

                        Whichever one it is you got a bargain and its looking so much better already bubble tips look funky and haddoni's look huge lol I do only have google for reference though

                        After looking at pictures my guess at this stage it could be either but I am far from the expert or noob lol
                        Never underestimate the power of a smile

                          She is looking better! Definitely a green bubbletip.
