    This won't pull through unless you treat it asap.

    Your best bet is Baytril by Bayer. If you have a sympathetic vet they will prescribe for an anemone. I used this successfully twice before for stichodactyla that looked worse than that on arrival and both survived and lived many years more. You need a bucket with an airstone and use 1 mL Baytril per 10L seawater.

    Change the water every 8 to 12 hours for 3 to 5 days (more in the early days). - oh and keep the bucket in the dark as the Baytril rapidly degrades in sunlight (UV).

    Do not just pour the Baytril down the sink after each water change, this contributes to resistance. Use bleach and place water in strong sunlight to deactivate the antibiotic

    URC, my hat off to you for actually showing us the nem under whites. I'll be crossing all my fingers and toes hoping this thing makes it, such a beautiful animal.

    Hope this creature survives. Have you tried anything specific besides hope and prayer? I know it's only been about 10 hours since you posted, but you got our attention and we care.
