Anemone dying?

Here are some pictures, I think it's trying to get some excess food out. He was fine as of 5 minutes ago, then my pump went a little higher in speed and it started to do this:::

Do you target feed your anemone at all?

Yeah, I only have two clowns so there isn't a lot of food to go his way to begin with.

The anemone is probably stressed out from the feeding. Anemones get 95% of their energy from light. They get the rest of their energy from food in the water column. There really isn't a need to target feed them.

I say leave him alone. He'll recover from the feeding. Just be careful in the future. If you do want to feed him, give him nothing bigger than a small pea sized portion; even then I recommend no target feeding.

It seems feeding him is what caused the problem in the first place. No need to feed him again. Give him time and be patient. The anemone gets all his energy from his environment. You really don't need to do anything.

I have had a green bubble tip Anemone for several months. Its normal for them to close up after being fed or to expel waste. It it stays that way for a day or two then worry, otherwise let it be. I have also noticed my anemone will not close completely now that a clown is hosting but it still closes most of the way on occasion.
