What's your salinity and do you use a refracto? Or hydrometer?

Well, just looking at the picture I can see that the main issue at hand is lack of lighting. PC bulbs, unless large numbers of them, won't be able to supply the intensity necessary. Even with T5HO bulbs, you need more than 4 4 bulbs for an anemone to be healthy and thrive. This being said, I prefer the 2-3 watt LEDs to supply the necessary lighting they need due to being lower priced and longer life of the diodes.

I'm not sure what my lighting is so when they turn off in a couple of hours I'll take a pic of the system that's over the tank. I use a refractor and it says my salinity is 1.025.

Your lighting with that tank is only for fish viewing, the nem will die over time unless you are willing to spend lets say $100 for the proper lighting. also you tanks really is too small for a nem, they get 10-15 inches in diameter. I would take it back until you have a stable set up to keep it alive.

This lta was five inches opened a few months ago, now well over a foot. I've tried different lights before, but both this nem, and my carpet migrated to be under my Hydra (highest intensity of my lights) they really thrive under intense lighting and very good water in a aged environment. Yours does look like it needs more light at the least to be happy

Thanks every one for your responses. Will I definitely need to get rid of it if this is my lighting? Obviously it's off but this is what the system looks like.Click image for larger version

I'm sorry but Anemones are not corals, they are invertebrates.

Haha, it's fine. I make mistakes all the time. Just making sure you were aware.

Is there anyway you can look up the output of your lights?
