Hubby and his anemone. Did you notice the picture he's referring to?

OK, so what exactly caused it's demise? I don't know anything about an anemone, I mean I don't even know how to pronounce it! I'm feeling pretty teary eyed right now, but for totally selfish reasons...I feel like I have a jelly fish brain!!
Love, Mom

uh-nem-O-nee

we think we might have added too much live rock at once. we are not quite sure what went wrong. it might not have had enough lighting. who really knows??!?!?!?! it was so cool to watch. i was bummed when it died. anemones will deflate to reinflate with fresh water. poor guy (or gal) just never reinflated. and he was STANKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

what, it died?

what a tragic event in the lives of the mugglefamily

you should use your magic to bring it back to life.

or to buy another one. unless you hated it, in which case not.

hey, haven't seen you round the blogs lately...but i guess you are morning.

Like "anonymous" I too am not sure what to say. Glad he/she? got a proper funeral. Better luck with the next one. : )

the deal with it is, it is a $120 anemone. YIKES!!!!! but don't worry....we didn't pay that much. we only paid around $20 because it was coded wrong. :D

i haven't been doing the blog rounds too much because i'm not online too much on the weekends.

So sad! Take comfort in the fact that he had a good life while he was with you. Jess
