I watched this video and fell in love with the big blue carpet anemone (that they highlight at 16:01): Usually for Christmas I get chocolate, sweaters, socks, deodorant (Hey, what are they trying to say?)... but nobody ever has talked about getting me a blue carpet nem. So... tis the season to pick out a present for myself! LOL I started looking around for one and studying to learn a little more about carpet nems. The one in the video is a Gigantea, which I hear is less hardy, so I'd really prefer a Haddoni carpet nem. Terry over at TNT Corals told me she could always order stuff in for me, so I figured I'd see what she could do. I told her I wanted a "small" one, preferably about 6", with really nice blue in it. I figured I'd rather have a small one with great color and room to grow than a big brown one. I sent her a few pics of what I was looking for just before Christmas. She made some calls, and put one of her guys to work searching through the import system out in California. It took about a week. Last night I got the call from Terri-- her guy found one in blue, 6" diameter, at an importer in California, right off the plane from Australia. She sent me a couple of pictures taken under halide, and I said, "Buy it!" Terri asked me if I wanted to have it shipped to my place, or to her in Marshalltown. I opted to have it go to her, since I would like to drop in and get some pointers from her and see the rest of her current inventory. The shipment comes in tomorrow morning! Terri was helpful, giving me a lot of pointers and care resources. I have a spot picked out for it where it should be able to grow for quite a while before it will need a relocation... as long as it doesn't want to go walking around! (I've heard horror stories about carpet nems blocking an overflow to cause living room flooding). I will post some pictures of it after I get it in my tank-- I'm excited!
