It's completely open again and it looks darker then what it was before it closed up. Probably is normal

It was completely white besides the purple at the tips when I got it and its mouth was open for about the first week. But now the mouth stays close and it eats good also

Looks good. Just a FYI you don't need to feed them they get all they need from light. Feeding them can actually stress them out more. I never feed mine at all.

I normally only feed it once a week. It's greedy with food.

They don't need it. It actually takes the nem more energy to digest the food then it gets from it. Like I said never feed mine and it was heathy and huge.

I have to disagree with the no feeding them , this goes along with the myth of not feeding coral also , Research there natural feeding habits ,Why would they eat food if it stresses them ? Yes to much food would as with any living creatures .Yes they can survive off of the algae inside them but this alone compares to you surviveing on nothing but green beans....You want a good healthy anemone feed it once in a while period..

The way I see it is why would they have a mouth if they didn't eat

Not here to start an argument just shareing my past experiences with my nem. Like I said I had mine for over a year and never feed it. It did not die or show any signs of starvation. I think they will feed if given the opportunity and I believe the same goes for in the wild but it is not nessesary if there if proper lighting for it to perform photosynthesis. Sometimes if they are overfeed or the pieces are to big it can actually cause damage this is the only reason I brought it up. The op asked for help I shared the info I had.
