I'm gettign so frustrated. My anemone looked fine before I went to work. nothing major looked wrong. I checked the water yesterday and It looked fine. Went to work at 7 found out I was going to be laied off for a least a week and I come home and see my anemone shrunk up and looking like crap. it looked like the day I got it earlier and now its all shrivled up and nasty looking.

dont fret- anemone frequently "deflate" and then reinflate later. normal.

Heheheh, that is normal as Jmaney said. they do that from time to time to expell waste and "reinflate" with new water later. Thin of it as taking a breath of fresh air. Don't worry! As for the job, hope everything is ok!

Laid off for a week? How does that work?

I agree. It looks healthy. When it expells its zooxanthellae and turns white, then you should worry.

Well getting laid off just work a week or two is pretty normal. Its just really frustrating cause its been happening more and more. I work in a yarn mill. So the amount of orders we have is directly affected by the economy. During the housing surge things were great cause of new carpet was needed in new houses. But now in this housing slump the need for carpet is low. And with the economy bad not many people are thinking they need new carpet. Plus many people are switching to laminate and hardwood flooring.

But that isn't what you asked. basically they send you home tell you to come back in a week or two(sometimes more) you go in the following Monday and apply for unemployment. Its something not as much as regular pay just something to help out until I get back working.

Hrmm, I'm not sure how big or small the apt complex industry is in terms of needing carpet. However, if your company isn't already partnering with POST properties or Gables, you should tell mgnt to look into that. They replace their carpets probably a lot more often than homeowners would at around every 2-4 years if units are rented out to different people.

I work for the smallest of the big three here in Dalton. Commercial carpeting is the biggest market. Right now everything is in a slump. Even the bigger two companies are laying off when traditionally they didn't have to. Its a slow time in the cycle. I only worked about 4 weeks out of the last quarter of last year. That's the slowest time since everyone is trying to lower inventory and not many companies if any are buying any flooring products.


Oh yeah I'm just a lowly peon at this company. on the low end of the totem pole so to speak.
