Anemone

My anemone was looking great one hour ago and then as soon as my lights went on this happened? I have had it for about a week now. Why did this happen? Is it dead?

How long have you had it? Agree your tank looks new - how long has it been set up? What kind of lighting are you running? My nems close at night...

It's been up for about two months and I'm running two 120w Taotronics. It happened as soon as my lights kicked on but, it looks like its coming back now.

How long have you had the nem? Your lighting is good for nems but if its new to the tank and you didn't acclimate it properly that could be why it's upset. Is this your first salt water tank? I hope you had done your research in keeping this creature

It's perfectly normal for them to contract and expand. If it is dying it will look like it is falling apart or melting, and generally lose a lot of color.
