Please HELP!

One plastic part of one tank that I take care fell in the base of a Ritteri anemone and when I tried to take it out I touch the base of the Anemone by mistake. I didn't pull or anything else but it started to shrink. Is it in danger?... Is it going to die?... Please HELP!

    It should be fine. Anemone's often recoil like that when touched as a defense mechanism. It should bounce back up soon enough.

The long tentacles anemones are very attractive to see and very friendly in the aquarium.

    They are very attractive; but wandering is an issue. I had this wandering issue. After several weeks of wandering, I came up with a plan...and it worked! I took a 2 inch piece of PVC and cut it (3 1/2 inches long). I placed it in the aquarium laying down and gently created current with my hand to back the anemone foot into the pipe. I waited an hour and the anemone planted his foot into the pipe. After several hours I tunneled a hole in the substrate down to the glass. I stood the pipe up and planted it in the hole. I then built the substrate around the PVC so it is not visible. It has been a few weeks. The anemone is now eating, fully open and best of all planted!

I had the soft heads of mine eaten by an emerald crab. Any chance it's still alive and may grow back? Any way to deter the crab from eating it again?

I have a toadstool and sometimes the appendages recede. Is this indicative of anything wrong?

"You have the wrong scientific name for this coral. It should be acropora cervicornis."

Editor note: Thank you! We have changed the picture to the correct species.

I have2 Devils Finger Leather Corals, they are attached to 1 Live Rock. They have both grown substantially in the last Year. I leave plenty of room next to them. They are easy and are good looking. I had them in the back of the tank, but recently moved them to the center of the tank. They are still doing very well. I have read that they only grow three inches, but mine are at least 5 inches. They are a good Coral to have.
