Sebae anemone

This is a photo of my sebae anemone that has been in my tank for about 3 days now. The photo does not have the aquarium lights on. How can I tell if it is fully open.

It looks fairly open. If it was closed up, the appendages would have shriveled up. Any pics with the lights on? What kind of lights are you using?

From those photos do u think it looks healthy. It has it foot planted in the rocks. It has very sticky tentacles and it hasn't moved much.

Hard to tell without aquarium lights. But as long as it's not bleached and you have enough light and good water parameters, then yes it "looks" ok. Sebae's are a bit tougher to keep than BTAs.

It isnt bleached when the lights are off it looks brown with purple tips and when the lights are on it looks a little green with purple tips.
