Bubble tip anemone

I have a 30gal tank with 30+ live rock and 40lbs of live sand.. I got an anemone like a week ago and it looks bad. Is it dieing? Also how does one feed an anemone?.. I've had my tank running for a couple or months now.. My parameters are good ph-8.0-ammonia is 0- nitrites-0 and nitrates-between 0-3ppm. I also have some zoas and a torch , with one clown, flame angel, fire fish and chromis and fire shrimp .. Click image for larger version

Yes, it definitely is. What kind if lighting do you have? Also anemones need stable tank parameters. It's recommended to have your tank running for at least 6 months.

I have a t5 ho 96w light .. It has two actinic bulbs and two regular .. Should I remove the anemone from my tank?.. The anemone still moves around the tank.. My parameters are stable..

You don't need to feed your type of anemone. Most anemone that we house are photosynthetic and get all the energy they need from your light source. You can feed them small pieces of food, like mysis shrimp, but it needs to be small. Too large of pieces can be stressful on the anemone. The same goes for feeding too often and if you decide to go that route, I wouldn't attempt to do it more than twice a week and no more than a piece of food.

Take the shrimp and hand it to one of the tentacles. It'll do the rest.

Not sure about the white stuff but something is wrong. I would consider tank maturity or lighting. He isn't starving of food so I wouldn't worry bout that. Everything else seem ok?

It is hard to tell, but keep in mind that bubble tips do have spots of white on them.
