Anemones do not get ick or velvet. Not sure it there might be a problem or it is just the anemones natural coloration, can you post a picture?

If it was all white, this would mean that the anemone bleached from either inadequate or extremely different conditions than it was used to. What kind of lighting do you have (type and intensity) and try and describe your tank as a whole (size, livestock, filtration, etc.).

The color of the base has little connection to whether the anemone released its zooxanthallae. This is the only condition I know of that would take a colored anemone and make it appear white. LFS are famous for having bleached anemones so unfortunately that also isn't a safe comparison. Of all the Pacific host anemones available in the trade, none of them are naturally white which is not a good sign.

I can only make a guess on that though based on the color you mentioned. Without a picture it is tough for me to throw much else out there so maybe someone else might have some other idea. The 32 watters though don't punch very far into a 55g....how far below the lights is the anemone?
