It as trying to get him out of there, but I helped a little (making sure I didn't tear anything). The CA is about 8-9" inches in diameter and the freaking Mexican Turbo Snail is about a 1 1/2 to 2". Have had them both for close to six months and have never seen anything like it...Just thought I would share. Hope you enjoy.

    ( I set the snail do...very far away.. and in 20 minutes he walked away)

    I've heard of a carpet anemone eating a Morish Idol before.

    I watched a Stichodactyla gigantea Carpet eat a 12" long Naso lituratus once, so the answer is yes.
