This anemone could have been recently fragged. They are cutting them in half now instead of waiting for them to split. It takes a little time for it to heal up. I wouldn't call it doomed, just yet.

The green bubble tip with the mouth that won't close is another issue. Parameters.

They are photosynthetic and do not need to be fed. I am not sure exactly how long it takes for them to heal, but it's not too long.

ill take a pic of mine later but im not sure its even a gbta any more, it looks a lot different than on google, it has a thick round base body, and its circular with tips only around the circle part, and the mouth in the middle has no tentacles

basically looks like a flower..but really cool

That's just the camera, right? Your water isn't that cloudy is it?

No matter which anemone, a gaping mouth is not a good sign.
