Well one update, another member pm'd me to let me know those arent nuclear greens. He is correct, and I don't even know why I wrote that. NG's are palys those are zoos, go figure, I guess I should stop drinking so much malt liquor.
The nem got a few pellets this morning so it's contracted a bit and not touching much,. but the top half of the colony is closed still. When the 40 or so polyps of orange bam, bam got nuked it took a fair amount of time for the nem to kill them, they just slowly went away. So it's not instant dead like it would be for an sps
. Similarly it takes a nem awhile to kill ricordea florida, but believe me nems can and will kill rics. The rics bothered me a little, these zoos not at all, just an event to be marveled at. The nem hasn't moved it's foot, it just popped out of a different hole in the rock which put it closer to the zoos. That 1/3 of my 180g is just simply for the rbta
's at this point, those zoanthids came from my nano and were in the tank awhile before the nems so I just consider them collateral damage.
On another note I'm going to have to let the nem brush on the inside of arm where the skin is tender and see if stings me. I'm curious now. It doesn't sting my hands, I know that.
