Dying anemone?!?!?!?!

I got an anemone and a coral the other day (corals doing amazing) and I have then in QT with 3 lights. The stock light (for a 20) my fuge light (nothing in it right now) and a desk light (40w). I pooped yesterday and was looking nice and full this morning, just got home, and it is shriveled with its mouth open. The tentacles have a greenisha tint and are shriveled. Could he be pooping again? He ate the day I brought him home. Do they just do this sometimes?

I am happy for you.

Seriously though, are you sure it is getting enough light? Don't they need tons of light? Not sure you QT is going to do it.

Its starting to inflate again and its mouth closed. If it shows signs of discoloration (not enough light) I will put a dual bulb 36" T8 fixture over the tank. For christmas getting this baby.
