I won a rose bulb anemone on ebay and it arrived just a few min ago. It looks great only one problem ... I put it in a bucket to start acclimating him and he already attached him self to the side of the bucket... HOW DO I GET HIM OFF THE SIDE OF THE BUCKET WITHOUT INJURING HIM AFTER HE"S ACCLIMATED?

use a powerhead or something to blow against it. that usually irritates them and will make them let go or else move. :) maybe others have a better suggestion though.

I've also heard that if you rub ice on the foot i will release. I've never tried it though.

yeah i was thinking you could rub ice on the outside of the bucket or something to cool it off. i'd be afraid if it got too cold that some tissue damage may happen though.
