hello

Ok so my tanks been up for about 5 months. A couple weeks ago I had a anemone detach from a rock and get sucked up in a wave maker. When that happened I came home and my entire tank was milky white and the anemone was dead. This guy here didnt seem to take that well either its a green bubble tip. Ive done quite a few water changes since then and he has been doing a lot better. Everyday he is getting bigger and bigger. Why is he bleach white? And will he get his color back? What do I do?

The anemone you have is photosynthetic. They require high amounts of light to survive. It is turning white due to not having enough light and it is stretching out to try to get enough to survive.

T5ho I turned the blue off so you can see his color better. He use to be green but after that incident with the other anemone this happened. He seems to be getting better but not to his full size yet nor color at all.

How many bulbs? Depending on the size of the tank an anemone would need about 6 bulbs of t5ho.
