    I have three nems in my tank
    seabea nem
    rock nem
    and a long tentacle white
    I have had my seabea the longest last week it shrunk up and wont inflate. its been in there for about 6 month and when inflated its about 16 inches round.. My other nems are doing great.. My perams are perfect and i run 8/80w t5s so i have plenty of light..I have tried feeding it and it wont eat..
    What is happening to my NEM????????

    When anenomes die they can put off a toxin that can kill the entire tank. Referred to as "nuking" the tank.

    Figuritively and literally.:shock:

    Best bet, is when you "know" it's to the point of no return....remove it from the tank.
