Anemone crisis!

I got a bubble tip anemone yesterday and he was doing fine. My clown synced with it and everything was jolly. I come home late last night and notice my anemone is hung on an overhang in my rocks prolly cuz I left the lights on to long. This morning I wake up and find it face down in the sand.. I pick him up and put him face up on the sand bed next to some rocks. He does t look bad he still has his colors just look weak.

Mouth open isn't good. Why lighting do you have? And what about flow? It looks like there is absolutely no flow.

If thats the color its been since you got it then it was already bleached and on its way to death. It looks like a goner. I would remove before it pollutes the tank. Mouth being that open its only a matter of time before it expels its insides.

I agree it doesn't look good. Not only is it bleached, it was dyed. That color green is not a natural color.

Looks great! Good job being patient, and giving it a little time to adjust. Looks like that's all it needed.
Good luck with your tank!

Considering that it looks like its turned the corner from a few days ago, if provided ample light, it should gain its color back. I feed my Sebae once every 10-14 days, a silverside. Some say feeding is not necessary, as they are mostly photosynthetic, but I like to feed mine every so often. I've had my Nem for over 6 years.
Continued luck with it Juan!
