rose bubble tip

i got this rose bubble tip anemone about a week ago. yesterday i got my coralife 24 inch 65x2 watt lights (from captive reefs, amazing shipping speed). well today my mom said that about at 11 it was looking horrible, all the tintecles were tiny and grey. so she turned off the light. she said that it looked better in about 2 hours. and then she just turned on the blue 10,000k lights. i was just wondering, what do you think is wrong with it? to much light? because he was doing awesome with my old 15 watt light that came with my tank.

no defintly not to much lights in fact anenomes need intense light, most do not fair well without them. Anenomes, poop like all animals when they do they will often retract their tentcles and expell water, this causes them to look shrivled, but they should returnt to normal within a few hours. Otherwise i would think that the only other possibilty is poor water, or it being picked on by another fish

that is normal clown behavior, in fact i have ot flase percs that do the same to a BTA, it may be a lot for the anenome if the clown is much bigger than the anenome. How big are they

The fact that it is wondering around means that it is not happy with something. How much flow do you have? What are your current water parameters?
