I bought a BTA about a month and a half ago, it was doing well for about a month, had a black percual hosted to it and everything and within 3 days it looked like my second picture. It's been like that for about 20 days. The foot is firmly attached so there's no moving it and I quarantined the clown so it wouldn't stress out the anemone any more but idk what to do. It gets enough light I have t5 lighting that I run 8 hours a day. 75 gallon tank,My water perimeters seem good
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 0
Calcium: 450
Alk: 4 drops
Iv had the tank for about 2 years, had fish only for a long time and made it to keeping corals, I have a few hard corals, a finger leather, and Xenia. The only one giving me problems is the bubble tip. Fish are, yellow and blue tang, watchmen goby, a clown, fuzzy lion. Any advice or help will be much appreciated thanks !

Not the kelvin rating, the actual wattage of the light. Also what test kit are you using for alkalinity?

We need to know what type lighting and how old the tank is. Anenomes need a mature tank of at least a year old IMO and experience. They also need a high intensity light.

The tank is 2 years old and has been reef ready for about 6 months and I got new lights a month before getting the anemone.

Do you know what test kit the petco used? 4 drops could equal 4 dKh which is extremely low. Do any of your other corals look bad?
