Ok guys I have a conspiracy , I found a tentacle on sandbed I think from the healthy nems because it was very bright. So I thought cool I can feed to my bleached nem to help restore zooxanthelle, so put into its mouth it moved the tentacle to the side and it looks like it’s fusing with it?! It’s the bright tentacle near bottom , I saw messentrial filaments near tentacle as if to attach it , still there this morning will see after work what happens lol

The nem will "kill" the tent first and then eat. Just a defense mechanism, as a clipped tent goes into offense when clipped. Will be no harm to the current nem, as the clipping has no additional aid from it's "body" to replenish it.

AKA, it has one round in mag and not able to reload. Full nem has full mag and speed reloads lol.

it does work and I have been doing it for years. With your bta, it doesnt really appear that it needed it. It will not hurt it though either.

Never mind stopped ,all done now, here comes the cold ...;):D
That is clearly the ultra-special "snow" coral! Each polyp typically has 6 tentacles. In some areas, these polyps are highly valued as a bottom cover. Others prefer to keep their yard reef "bare-bottom" and detest how invasive these polyps are under certain climate parameters, such as low temperature and high levels of dihydrogen monoxide.
