Just wanted to show off my anemone removal invention.

All you need is a piece of foam, a plastic cup and two long rubber bands. Cut a hole in the foam, cut off the bottom of the cup and make holes for the rubber bands.

Then, simply annoy the anemone until it closes up enough to put the foam over it. Finally, place the cup over the foam and use the rubber bands to hold it in place. The anemone will just walk out...

Before - foot in a deep crevice

The contraption

Truly brilliant yet simple. Kind of make you say “why didn’t I think of that”. Lol. I do need to get one out so going to try this. Thank you

genius.
someone (not me) will patent this and make millions.
now I need to figure out how to make it work for the nem on my back glass.
They are very easy to get off glass. Just use something thin like a piece of plastic with a thin edge, but not sharp edge, preferably with rounded corners. Just slowly and carefully work it under the foot and work your way around the edge lifting gently.
