Neat find but it looks like you have cyanobacteria on the substrate.

Nem is very bleached, what type of lighting do you have? It will need high output lighting and pristine stab,e water conditions to survive. And with all the cryno on you sand you do not have the water conditions that it needs,

The cyano is going away. I have a two bulb t5 over the 36 gallon tank that the rest of the corals thrive under. But againa the cyano Is going away fast! I don't think heis doing to bad because I took the pic right when I put him in and now he has doubled in greenness!!!! (If that's even a word lol)!

You need way more lighting than that or it will die.

Either a 6bulb t5, reef capable LEDs, or metal halide. You should go look at the "best bang for your buck" thread on this site. They mention Chinese LEDs that you could buy off ebay called taotronics that are inexpensive and works great. Got myself one also. Would hate to see that beautiful anemone die.

Here is a good light and it should only take one to light up your tank.

New Dimmable 120W Aquarium Coral Reef Fish Tank White Blue LED Light White US | eBay

This is the chinese led fixture that is mentioned.

I had problems keeping a gbta with a 4 bulb t5.. I have 3 of the taotronics mentioned for a 6 foot tank with no problems. Big difference in the light required for softies and for nems.
