Anemone behavior

A gulfarium /aqua farm knew my bio (14 gallon) was set up for a month, water checked out fine so we purchased an anemone along with two clownfish. Things went great for four days, then the anemone went to hide behind the rocks. He seems to bloat, then shrink. Sick? The clownfish, arrow crab, hermit crab seem to be fine. Our Zoa is doing fine too. We bought the water already "prepared" & live rock from a local reef store. Only algea is green, which we've been told is a good sign.

Might be pooping. Anemone's will move until its comfortable. What type of anemone do you have? Parameters of water (some anemones are hardier than others)? Also, how did you acclimate it?

The lights in the Biocube cannot support an anemone, you need to upgrade your light and hope for the best or do the smarter option and return it to save it.
