Anemone problems

Our new anemone (pictured here: http://www.aquariumadvice.com/photop...php?photo=5485) has began to shrivel and seems to have changed color slightly (it has gotten darker). It has detached itself from the LR and has kind of just settled on the sand. Just hours ago, it was fine and fully bulbed. Should I be worried? I don't have any experience with anemone, this being our first one. Is this natural?

they will move until they find their happy spot which in my experience is on a rock where they can plant their foot in a crevice have never had one settle on the bottom they do change color abit do not think you have to worry about darker it is when they get pale that they are hungry this person helped me a lot in the begining

My long tentacle, purple tip has been with me for some time now... about 5 years and has moved plenty through then, including between houses. Right now he's got his foot through 5" of sand to the tank base. He used to like it up on a rock (see my avatar).

anemone problems

We brought home our first anemone about two weeks ago, a Long Tenticle. He appeared healthy but white in color. I placed him on the bottom of the tank against a live rock, where he anchored himself and has remained ever since.
After not showing any interest in food, I force fed him a krill, which he tolerated. The past three days, I have given him a small piece of fresh, uncooked shrimp which he gobbles right up! He seems to be very happy right after eating and is getting some color to him as well.

Good Luck with yours! It's beautiful!
