The temp is more likely the cause of bleaching ?
She seams to be starting to get color back ,
I've been feeding her shrimp or scallops everyday ,
What is it with the fresh seafood that makes my skimmer go crazy ?

Probably oily. But, don't feed so much. It can either lead to high nitrates or just that it takes a ton of energy for an anemone to digest. Just stick with lighting and stable parameters.

Oh .
I was to the understanding that a bleached anemone needs help with getting more nutrients and gets it through food , more food , lights and stable water conditions .

Actually, I disagree with not feeding. I would be feeding it small pieces of chopped fish or shrimp a few times a week. Not so much that it causes problems with your parameters however. Like a piece a third the size of a pea for a baseball sized anemone.

Mine is considerably smaller now then it normally was but still about 8" across .
1 whole shrimp might be a little too much but parameters seam to be good .

I've noticed she has found a new home and stretched out seaming to be relaxed ,
Any ideas why she would be so big in the last fe days ?
She seams to like her new spot she hasn't moved in over a week ,

Trying to get much light as possible. You want them to be inflated like that.

I don't know if you saw pictures before bleaching ,
She was huge before ,
It's nice to see her getting closer to her original size .
