Anemone problem

Hey all. I've been reading this for a long time and finally joined. You all are great answering other peoples problems with saltwater fish. Now I have one that hopefully you can answer once and for all. I'm having an anemone problem. This is the 3rd anemone that I've gotten and i think there's wrong with it. I've attached a picture. I don't know if it's pooping if it's dying if the clown fish is loving it too death...

Lighting: 2 54w T5 light bulbs
Water flow: medium
Temp:78
Saltwater level: 26
PH: 8
Nitrates 0
Nitrates 0

Please tell me what you think

No picture but it probably is not enough light. How long has the tank been running? A 2 bulb t5 is not enough for any nem.

Sorry I put the pictures right after in a new post. So I've talked to many fish stores. If this is the problem that would be nice because its a quick fix. What light do you suggest?

I've been doing research and have come to the conclusion that the lighting is the problem. Does anyone suggest any kind of lighting or wattage to use for a 55 gallon tank 20in deep?
