Yeah, the ones in the link you attached are a light tan with bright purple tips. In the pic you posted of yours, it looks entirely white with very little color at tips. Its my understanding that pretty much all nems in the lfs are bleached to some extent when you buy them, the lfs just doesn't usually have the right lighting for them. That doesn't mean that yours can't come back to bein healthy!! I bought a GBTA that was a little bleached not too long ago, and now it's becoming nice brown with green tips. Don't give up on it. Just make sure it gets plenty of light and I give mine very small bits of food every few days, and it's coming back.

2 day T5 at 43 watts each is not enough to keep a nem, and with the one you got already bleached Im afraid the out come will be the same as the last nem you had, sorry but your lighting just is not enough

Ah I'm glad I know now! I never liked the condy anemones and I've only really seen them at petco . So that would make sense that they're bleached...our local petco has a very very low survival rate

Thanks everyone. I wasn't trying to prove anything to anyone. I didn't notice the light brown on the ones I posted. I can see how mine is bleached because its almost see through. I think I'm going to take it back because of this and half of my fish have died since I put it in. My blue hippo tang was dead when I woke up this morning. I also lost my yellow tang and a clown fish late Saturday. So I hope that its not dying and killing my fish with it. It opened back up last night over time.

You seem to have problems with every fish you put in your tank. And having a Hippo and a Yellow in a 35 (please correct me if I am wrong) is part of the reason they died. I would take the nem back and slow down and figure out what is wrong with your set up, do not add anything else until you get your tank stable. Tangs need a 6 ft tank and nems need stable water conditions and high out put lighting and right now you do not have either one. Not trying to flame but to lose all your fish in a very short period of time means there is something wrong and it wasnt the nem. no one wants to see you lose any more fish than you already have. Start with the history and the test results and we can try and help figure out what is wrong.

I haven't had any issues with fish until just recently. Parameters are normal.

Sorry, but you are doing something wrong for those fish to die randomly like that. It wasent the nem. Re think EVERYTHING you are doing IMO
