That nem isn't looking too good, but you did just move him..... what kind of lights on that tank?

Bottom left pic - at the top of the pic, I see what looks like the stalk of a vermetid snail... they are a stationary snail that exude a web looking mucus to capture food. Could be what you're seeing..... They aren't bad in moderation, but it you get a bunch of them around a coral, the mucus can damage the coral. If I see a group of them, I'll just take a pair of tweezers and crush a bunch of them at the base.... my six-line loves the extra snack.

The red dots in the lower right appear as though you may have the beginnings of some coralline growth....

I did just move him into the tank..as well as a few times when placing him in the tank..why doesn't he look good? So I should get rid of that gooey "snail" stuff..that's actually a future coral platform its on lol

bring the nem back to the store, your tank is way too new and unstable for it. do you have test kits for phosphate, alkalinity, calcium and magnesium?

they are extremely sensitive to water parameter swings, which is why they shouldn't be put in tanks less than six months old. didn't you say that you added a light in your other thread? what light? with the biocube stock lights you can only keep the lowest of the low light demanding corals. anemones require high amounts of light

don't return him just yet. if hes moving around, that means hes attempting to get settled in and find his perfect light spot. if he climbs all the way to the top of your rockscape, right under your lights, then its safe to say he isn't getting enough light, if however he settles anywhere else, id say he is getting enough light and is happy

heres the liveaquaria info for the condy anemone. a few things worth noting are that it moves around the tank and its sting can inflict grave damage to other corals/fish. and also they aren't known to be host to any fish (clownfish, etc) as they can eat them.
