I have to agree. Even if there still is some hint of green left the nem is still badly bleached and it has nothing to do with the picture quality or what you used to edit.

Dead nems can cause problems so thats what we are trying to avoid.

My info may be old but I've heard that crushed oyster shells can cause pH issues and is also to sharp to be a safe substrate. What has your pH been in the new tank.

The other problem is your specific gravity. It really needs to be 1-024-1.026 for corals and anemones. Yet another issue is using tap water. That's never a good option for a tank with inverts.
