you called it a bubble tip? IF so they are never white, if it is then it is very bleached.

It is a bubble tip which is very bleached, he main thing that causes a BTA to "bleach" or lose its coloration is lack or sufficient light killing off the symbiotic algae in its tissues. Such a condition if not remedied will eventually cause for the anemones demise. What lighting do you have? At this stage it will slowly waste away. With good lighting, preferably MH, and pristine stable water conditions, and some small feedings, you might have a chance to save it. I would take it back.

Well I got it about a week ago now. And that's what color it was when I got it. I have it in my 55 gallon with pretty good water parameters and LEDs. It's about half way down the tank in the rocks. Should I turn up my lights?

Maybe ph swings from my fuge lights bothering it? I've noticed about an hour before the daylights go off it deflates. And for the rest of the 2 hours the actinics are on it starts comming back again.
