Bubble tip help?

GBTA in my tank for 2 weeks now. First pick is how it usually looks and second pic is what it looked like this morning. Is it expelling waste? Flushing system? Dying? Tank has been up for a year parameters are 1.024 SG, 8.1 PH, 0 ammonia, nitrates and nitrites all 0. Temp 78 and lighting is 2 Vho t5's, running a skimmer and two powerheads, and aquaclear 70 with carbon and phosphate blocker.

It may be expelling waste. Anything new to the tank in the last couple days? Water change perhaps? 2 T5's probably isn't enough light to keep an anemone healthy. They need stronger lighting than star polyps or softies.

Yes 4 gallon water change on Friday. I also have a LED with 12 white and 12 blue diodes on it, should I run this with the 10,000 daylight and 24 watt actinic? Thank you Mr. X

This one, its gives wattage it consumes but not what it gives off. If it is a watt per diode than its 12 watts?

I imagine they are 1 watt LEDs and yes, it would help. I couldn't tell you if you have enough light total to support an anemone, but I would be running that fixture as well.
