They turn around and ask $60 for them, used to be $80.
Better off to sell them here at a nominal cost, or even donate them to a fellow hobbyist.
They wouldnt even swap you for same size piece of dry rock? If thats the case, eff that noise. OP isnt in BC, but good to know for locals in the future.

I know a lot of LFS's in US would at least trade you for some dry rock, and some of them would gladly give you store credit.

You can also suspend the rock upside down is the tank or tub of SW with a powerhead for circulation. If in tank keep a big net underneath. The rbtas won't like hanging suspended and will let go after a couple of days. I've done this and it works. Just thought I'd use gravity to my advantage and the anemones popped off by themselves. Good luck,

Anthony

yeah trading is probably my best bet, store or hobbyist. Might even have to try here on CanReef, Replant a local flag.

That seems easy, but even for the little buggers that are deeply seeded in very textured rock where they could right themselves and move around inside easily?

you just gave me a reason to fire the "quarintine" tank up again, not attached to my system as I had planned. have not had it set up in a while as there has been NO new additions in quite some time and this tank is in easy mode.

I went with a round of pickling lime(kalk). Took out as many baby's as I felt comfortable, let them sit for a bit, turned my pumps on and watched my ph jump. Whoops I'll do smaller rounds for future cleanup. I think this will be my go to for control going forward. Sell the odd bigger one and cull the rest.
