I've seen that stringy white/beige looking material coming off around the column on most of the anemones I treat. It comes off in like rings around the column. Could be the anemone sloughing off dead cells from the stress or it could be sloughing off dead bacteria that collects on the surface. I treated two perfectly healthy looking mags last week and even they had that material accumulating around the foot.End of day 1.
I periodically removed some waste that the nem expelled throughout the day:
It began inflating towards the end of the day. Here’s how it looks now:
It's looking a lot better. I'll do a water change and add another dose of Cipro before lights out.
If it expands tomorrow, I'll increase the current in the QT tank. This will make it easier to the nem to expel any additional waste on its own (and I'll collect it as I see it using a turket baster). Note that what's coming out is not dead zoox (it's not a dark color, nor is it solidified), so I don't think it has an infection. Adding Cipro typically doesn't make things worse, so I may continue the regimen a for few more days.
The anemone is looking good so far! Still sending good vibes your way that it continues to improve.
