A little off topic but I have a anemone question .
May 24 2013 I went away for the long weekend and came home to a hot tank and a very white anemone .
Even though she is bleached obviously was stressed and unhappy ,
She stays in the same place, wanders around 1 rock then back within a day or do .
I noticed color streaking on her tentacles a few weeks ago ?
Is she finally getting color back ?
She eats 1 shrimp once a week .
It's about 12" dia

Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated ,
My LFS suggested I treat with amino acid ( containing copper )
I read on here that light frequent feelings to prevent her from starving .

Correct, clowns hosting do oxygenate the water around the anemone.

Yes, they will move until they find a spot they are happy with. But that doesn't change what a clownfish can do to benefit the anemone. One of which is increasing the oxygenation around the anemone with the increased movement through it. This was something that scientists just stumbled upon pretty recently and there was an article put out about it in the last 6 months to a year.

Also they may be looking for a spot that doesn't exist in our little tanks. That is why I was curious about the flow.
