When was the last time you replaced the bulbs and how deep is the tank? 4 bulb unit isn't usually enough in a deeper tank IMHO, 6-8 bulb units are better for nems

Well unfortunately, that lighting just isn't enough to support an anemone. I usually suggest 6 bulb t5ho as a start.
But I am also interested in how the anemone was acclimated to the tank. If not properly acclimated it can take them quite some time to adjust to the system and stay hidden away as they adjust. This is to include acclimation to both water and lighting.

I can't afford more lights right now lol but I'll see if it makes it with juts the 4 bulbs, and as for acclimation, I did a drip system. It was perfectly healthy for about 3 weeks before it started acting like this. And idk about lights it seems the most open at night and the moment the lights come on it shrinks to half that size. I know it could possibly be bigger at night because it trying to expand its surface area for light, but it jus seems a little strange

[QUOTE=Tim27;2996600]I can't afford more lights right now lol but I'll see if it makes it with juts the 4 bulbs,


This is not being a responsible reefer, we must do research BEFORE we buy something not its what I have maybe it will live and maybe it won't attitude. With that said, the nem was partially bleached when you got it, which means it went healthy and that it will take pristine water, lighting and flow conditions for it to have a chance. It color should be a very dark green with red highlights.

Bleached Anemone:
The lost of color or “bleaching” is a result of the loss of an anemone’s zooxanthellae. This can happen for a number of reasons such as excessive temperature changes, excessive lighting, insufficient lightning, physical stress, excessive salinity, etc.
Just like corals, anemones use their zooxanthellae to feed on light. The other part of their nutrition comes from meat. Unfortunately, they cannot survive solely on captured prey as their primary source of energy. An anemone without zooxanthellae is usually on the brink of death so:


Bleaching can be reversed, but it takes commitment and time. First thing to do is to is to provide excellent water quality and optimal lighting. If you fear your light is too strong, you can simply reduce the photo period and increase the time slowly over a couple of weeks. This will allow the anemone to addapt. When the light is too strong, the anemone will usually hide from it. The anemone should also be feed in small quantities on a regular basis (3-4 times a week) until it’s color recovers. This will keep it from starving since it dosn’t have it’s symbiotic algae to help out.

Nem is recovering slowly but much better than before. Will be upgrading lights within a week or so.
