New Mag - treat or still acclimating?

Picked this one up on Friday from LFS. They said they had it about 3 weeks and gone through a cipro treatment. Was looking good up until I came downstairs this morning before lights are on





It seems to perk up once I turn the lights on but not sure if I should just pull and treat. I have cipro and septra, guessing Iíll have to use septra since it supposedly already had cipro treatment.

Any thoughts?

Carefully pulled it off the rock and into HT. Started septra (sulfa forte) this morning. Assuming the LFS isnít lying and that they used cipro I wonít go that route.

That is an anemone in need of cipro, I would not waste time, and I would not take LFS word that they treated it properly.

This is classic bacterial infection deflation signs IMO

Make sure you follow the cipro protocol exact, including the 100% WC's, that is a big deal.
It's possible your LFS may have dosed cipro, but did they dose at day or night, did they do the WC's needed, and did they follow protocol properly, that would be my question even if they were honest.
I don't think a lot of LFS are outright dishonest, just are they properly informed.

Many do not realize cipro becomes inert w/ daylight, you've got an LFS that most likely operates during mostly day hours, hard to say if they ended the day doing the treatment, and doing it properly

Thanks. I followed it and was successful for a haddoni and gig. Lost a haddoni a few months back so Iím 2/3. I do 100% water changes and follow it exactly. Just started with septra on this since LFS said they already treated with cipro but Iím betting your right and they didnít follow proper protocol. Was a Sebastian and long tentacle in the tank with it.

I would expect if they treated properly it would have been isolated

Day 1

After getting in the HT and dosing septra, I did another water change later that night and started cipro. Will continue with cipro and only add septra again if it worsens.

Day 3 (morning after)

Looks better than Day 2...To me Day 1 looked the best, seemed to look a little worse on Day 2, now looking a little better.

Some mags seems to have a protruding mouth Iíve noticed, is this normal or should I disregard until after treatment?

Your mag is beautiful!

The mouth on mine did the same thing during treatment and still continues to just isnt as severe or noticeable now.

Thanks! I already have a haddoni and gig, but stopped in a new LFS and saw this and couldnít pass up. No LFS around me carry anything but BTAs.

Good to know, was curious about that as it seems different from my haddoni and gig. I had to treat both of those as well (from Live Aquaria) and while they had their mouth gaping, didnít look like this.

I dont blame you, I wouldnt have passed up that beauty either. It will be gorgeous once it colors up. I ordered mine through the lfs and it's the only one around so choices are limited.

My experience is limited as it's my first one so not really sure how normal it is. I just assumed it was because it hadnt fully expanded yet so the mouth was squished out. Thst is merely my guess though. Maybe someone else has a scientific reason.

Once its regained color I'd like to see what it looks like if you care to post a pic. Good luck though!

Thank you!

It's doing good, starting to take on a nice lavender color. It still moves around a lot trying to find its happy place. Otherwise really healthy now.

Day 6

Well not looking as good as yesterday. I think itís more of a shrink then deflation. Mouth is not gaping. Has never expelled anything. Not sure what to make of it, was more full this morning.

After 7 nights of treatment, back in the DT. Took a little while to attach but looking good.


Also, some shameless pics of my other anemones. Both the haddoni and gig were treated as well
