Healthy red bubble tipped anemone?

My anemone looks like this a day or 2 after I feed it. Is something wrong with it?

I would stop feeding it. You don't have to feed bubble tips, they get what they need from the light.

I'm by no means an expert but I only Feed mine about every 3 or 4 weeks...mysis shrimp.

Maybe too much feeding and it's having problems digesting ?

Again no expert here

When I had mine I never fed it. It gets all it needs from the lighting and water column. How often are you feeding it? Anenomes need a mature tank of at least a year old IMO. Also what type lighting are you using?

I feed mine a tiny bit of prawn every 4 days. Tiny being a quarter of a finger nail. My tank is just 5 months old and the lighting is fine.
