Anyone have experience with anemones . The first day he was fine. He moved around like everything I've read. Our marron clown hosted in him day one. Then a week later he was still under rocks. I turned the rock over and found a flat anemone. I have fed it and it responded. Then today he looked like this. I believe I need to get it out of my tank. Anyone agree or has anyone ever recovered a sick anemone. Please help any advice thanks.

See other suggestions and photos as well .

Is it possible to move the rock he is attached to? I had a stubborn BTA at one point, he would do similar things to what yours is doing. I would flip the rock over for him to start getting some light. In the end, I traded him for about 2000 pods for my mandarin since he just wouldn't do well.
This being said, with more diligence yours will do just fine. I have a red bta doing great, I had just got over the green one. Since anemone don't have a brain, it might just not realize what it is doing. Try to move the rock he is on and see what happens.
mine has been under my t5HOS for a year now and look at my avatar its healthy and beautiful, the key to it is keep them under quality lamps like ATI or KZ

+1 I totally agree T5HOS is the way to go for reef specially with anemone. T5 is only for FOLR

I disagree with the lighting comments. A bleaching anemone does not look like that, and doesn't hide from light either.
I would look to parameters. Are you adding anything to the tank in the way of supplements?
I would do a few water changes and see what that does.
I would not toss it just yet. Yes, it can recover if you can figure out the problem.

Do you have an auto top off and what is the rate? In my experience with anemone they are very sensitive when topping off fresh water and with large volume in a short period of time.

I am using kalkwasser. 4tsp in a 4 gallon bucket. I have a float switch set up to a toms aqua lifter. When water evaporates it adds the kalk mix to the sump. I go through 4 gallons in about 5 to 6 days. I was running gfo but I unplugged that.
