    Anemone won't let go from the plastic bag

    Right now he is attached to the plastic bag but not the entire bag because I cut most of the bag so he is just in a certain section. Should I wait a few days for him to let go or should I take the entire plastic sheet he is attached to and put him on the bottom.

    My chocolate chip star ate my mexican snail

    Is this common? The star was on top of the snail and sucked the snail into his mouth. I used to have a common hermit crab that did the same thing so I got rid of it and gave it to a lfs for credit.
