Ok so i got a haitian (sp?) anemone which is supposed to be a begginer one and one of the easier ones to take care of ..... well i heard where u put them in the tank is not where they will stay so when i put it in i put it in a spot i thought it would like .... but it still ended up moving under a rock ledge cave thing where it gets no light ..... its been there for 2 days and when i woke up today all the tenticles were inside of it and it is just a red ball ..... does this mean its dead or is it not getting enough light? .... should i move it .... take it out .... feed it ? ..... help .....

I would take it back. They need to be introduced to a mature tank, of about 6-12 months, or so. They will also need to be light acclimanted, from what have read. Sorry I can't be of more assistance, I have never had one. Hopefully some one might be along to help.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Anenomies need a very mature tank. IMO they need to be a year old.
