Long T Anenome Dying???

Hello all,
Anyone have any experience with LTA's please take a look at my little guy, all of the sudden his tentacles are shriveling up and changing color. He has been in the tank for almost a year and never looked like this.

Have not seen anything like it. Looks like it it two anemones could it be how they look when splitting? Wish I could help more. I have had one die on me and they can really mess up a tank.

Any changes to the tank? What lighting do you use, if t5 could be time to change bulbs?

I think I saw a little blue leg in there around the mouth, maybe it is just pissed off because of the crab?

No changes, out of the blue kind of thing. I use two 48'' aquaticlife LED's, everybody else looks fine. Hopefully he will be back to normal in the morning.

The anemone has shriveled and wilted to the point where is was tiny, basically a column sitting in the sand. I took it out and disposed of it before my tank was trashed. The Skunk Clown is still hovering where the anemone used to be. Kinda sad. But, the rest of the tank is not harmed and looks healthy.

Did you ever figured out why your anemone never recovered? Do you have any other corals in your tank?

No idea. Water parameters are right on, I do have some corals; frogspawn, hammer, avelopora, yellow polyps, few zoas and some fish; 4 chromis, 3 clowns, 1 banggai, and a gobie or two. Took it out when is shriveled to about 1/10th its size and had almost let go of it's foothold. Sad.
