This sounds gross but if you suspect it's dead or dying do the sniff test it will smell fishy

How high do your nitrates read, I have a perfectly healthy condy and I can't get my nitrates under 20ppm unless my test is giving false readings.

Ok i have 2 api test kit,

The regular one say<40, the reef master say 0,
The LFS say is 0 so I go with the reef master one,I do 3 to 5 gallon water changes every 2 weeks on my 29g,I have a skimmer and use chemipure elite(I change last one in January),so everything is in check, I think maybe was already hurt from the fish store, and the switching tank did not help

How did you acclimate it? Slow drip is the best and have you fed it at all while you had it?

Yes,

But maybe the light where different,salinity,temperature, don't know exactly,anemones are very sensitive,I'm going to make sure ,if I get a new one,that is not bleached,....you know some people just want to make the sale some time....I'm planning a mini reef on a 14 g biocube, so maybe when I move some coral on the BC I'm going to get an healthy nem for the 29 g....I really like them, and maybe my clown is going to hosted....

Salinity and tempature would not have mattered if it was properly acclimated. By slow drip acclimation then floating. My nem was bleached but is colouring back up with mysis brine and chromoplex mixture with garlic guard and mushed silversides beheaded and deboned.i feed all my corals that and the fish and stars catch what floats off plus their nori and flakes. The nem gets some flakes as well.

I guess was the lighting,

I deal with 4 different fish store,but all of them told me to don't worry about feeding the anemone,because the main source of food is the light, but also always get some food from when I feed the fish,also use phytoplankton and trace element in bottles, so probably I have to agree about the lights....
