Purple tip dying

Think my purple tip nem is on its way out. The clown fish tried everything, wouldn't leave it's side, but now it's almost a raisin. ... I tried pwc, target feeding, thought maybe I left lights on to long (7 hrs), I'm outta ideas. Please help, anyone... He's upside down now, but atleast his tentacles aren't drown in like before. And all levels are good. I'm lost. I talked to lfs and they said if it dies, they would give me a rose bubble instead. I just want to find out y this one is sucking...

I dont think 7 hrs is too long. I leave mine on for 7 hrs to keep my tank cooler and the fish are fine. Hope he gets better, good luck.
BTW, if it does happen to die, good luck with the rosetip, there beautiful nems.

Ya I know. Im really not sure but how big is the tank and how strong is your lighting? As you know nems require VERY strong light. Maybe even leave it on longer. Im not sure. Again, best of luck.

If my ammonia is up, does that mean my nem died? It's up from 0 to about .25...

When your anemone begins to disintegrate, that's when it's dead. You can also tell if it's dead by smelling it. You'll know if it's dead like that.

As soon as I pulled it out, it turned to this gelatin mush... My other fish are ok, but my clown keeps looking for the nem...

Do a big pwc. Somewhere near 50%. Anemones release a lot of ammonia and it may have leaked into your tank.
