    Thanks for being so patient and understanding yall. I have definitely learned a few things doing this and if when I do another one I know what to change. The water snafu set me back a bit as it changed the order I had planned to do things as I had to set up an extra little tank to house and sort all these. I should have just pushed harder last night to get it running. Was trying to avoid overdoing it and pissing the nerve disorder off to much before the corals had even arrived.

    OP delivers!!! Seriously, thanks a ton to @Merith for a long day that benefitted a lot of club members despite the logistical snags.

    Hopefully I can get these guys acclimated before midnight.

    My strategy for putting these nems in my tank.

    1) drip acclimate for 30 minutes
    2) pick up nems and put them in plastic container with rock rubble in low flow area of tank
    3) deal with them tomorrow.

    I dont dip anemones and I've heard you should not dip nems.

    We all put corals into our tanks differently soooo do whatever you want.

    Thank you all for all the kind words and for being so understanding and patient with the delays and everything else.

    Hopefully everyone got some they just love.

    As far as adding them to the tank I quite agree with ender. I have dipped nems in the past and they have done fine, I ise revive, but that was only times where they were attached to a rock or something

    I just finished doing this. I added a bunch of heavy, flat frag plugs into my acclimation vessel to encourage the anemones to attach while I was dripping them. 3/5 attached to the plugs over the hour or so I was acclimating them. Then I transferred them into the basket in my sump. I encouraged the last two to attach by holding them gently against a frag plug until they did. They're all hanging out in the basket so they should be safe and contained if they do release over night.

    Here are the nems I got!

    I really just wanted the Red/Yellow one. Bought 4 in hopes that 1 would be that color! Heck yes! I also got a striped green one and two red/blueish one.

    My nem is on a small rock covered with a drilled 2ltr coke bottle.

    Love his color :)

    Nav I like how you did it! Good way to protect the nem if he detaches. And reduces flow to give him time to stick his foot.

    Thanks again Merith!

    I drip acclimated them then in the tank they went.

    I used the method someone mentioned. Just held them in place for a bit and they stuck.

    Circulation pumps are off but return pump is on

    Here they are in 100% lighting

    Yeah just hold them onto the rock for a couple seconds and they should stick.
