Hey guys,

I just bought this and the lady did not package it well…it was smushed in the bag. I do not smell anything bad (I heard that it will smell bad when it’s dead) but it looks like some parts of it are smushed? I’m not sure. Can anyone help? I do not want to put it in the tank if it’s dead or if there’s just a high chance that it will die if it isn’t already…

Doesn’t look dead. Turn off your pumps and power heads and place it where you think it will do well and where is can attach its foot. I would start somewhere low to mid tank on the rock. Let it be for good 15-30 minutes to give it a chance to attach.

Good luck
 

Look at me when I’m talking to you! Do you ever feel like your fish is trying to communicate with you?
