    If he is accepting food, then he is probably going to be OK. Do you have any pictures? Maybe let it be for a little longer and it should adjust and attach.

    But is it keeping food down? Generally anemones that don't settle and attach properly won't do well in the long term. That's usually the first and most important condition to meet for these animals before anything else can happen. Just make sure it is keeping food down and that it isn't disturbed in the meantime. All you can do besides that is observe and be patient.

    Amphiprion, did you mean keep the foot down or you actually saying to keep the food down?

    No, I meant food. The foot portion was mentioned along with attachment. Food egestion is mostly what I was talking about and to observe for that kind of behavior.

    Well i haven't seen him spit any food up and i've been watching him for at least a half hour for feedings. I also check on him periodically through the day.

    However, this morning I found him upside down in his cup... Since the Clarkii's can't get to him I assume he made this move on his own. His foot was flat against the mesh and he was partially closed. Not a good sign at all... I'm becoming very worried that I won't be able to help him

    He's right side up again now, but his foot remains unplanted. He's kind've a little tumble weed.

    I think it's over He threw up his guts today and smelled of dead fish. I'm so sad to lose him. I thought I had taken all the right steps to ensure I purchased a healthy specimen. Is it possible I overfed him? Poor thing, I feel so terrible. Worst day ever.

    Don't be too hard on yourself. You took all the appropriate steps. These are just difficult animals from the start--not because they are difficult in general, but because their initial appearance can belie their true condition. That and the fact that most are in poor health from the very start.

    Unhappy

    That's so sad about your little fella not making it but even to my inexperienced ears and all the resposes you received, it sure sounded like you did everything you could possibly do!
