So are these 75w VHO bulbs or some type of NO? Light intensity for this kind of anemone is quite inportant and needs clarification.
Still remains unanswered, and could be extremely important.

URI/VHO bulbs on an Icecap 660 ballast. Not for sure on the wattage-the extra bulbs are packed away until needed. If wattage is really needed to help out this problem, I'll check it out - let me know.

Not to worry. If VHO, a standard 24" bulb is 75 watts. For a 29 gal tank, 150w of VHO will actually be fine for this anemone. Time will only tell if it recovers. Just be sure to feed appropriately until it does and maintain the strictest water quality.

Good Luck
Cheers
Steve

Just an FYI for all of you that have helped us with this problem. The anemone is eating well, and coming out a little bit more during the day, where before all he would do is sink down into his hole in his rock. He now stays partially out and "Nemo" has found comfort in this little guy and pretty much abandoned the hammer-it's quite funny!! Thanks again for all of your help-I'm sure he'll make it!!
