The whiter one...

Actually, it looks like the pictures shows them with sun-light... then night-light.

Heteractis sebae nor Condylactis need any supplimental feedings in a tank where fish are already being fed. Feeding these kinds of anemones is for the most part a contributing factor in their shorter captive lifespans. When an anemone is stressed as yours is, feeding will only make it worse. 2x96w on a 38 gal tank should be fine for the sebae mabye a bit much for the condy, how deep is the tank?

The fact it detached suggests something amiss with water quality usually or flow. How long since the lights where changes?

I would post as many tank details as possible....

Cheers
Steve

You have a partially bleached Heteractis sebae. If the anemone is not doing well, the clown will only make matters worse.

Post the above answers as well as some additional info about the anemone. It is by no means shriveled if the pic is what you are refering to but is the mouth opening loose, gaping or tight?

BTW, I have merged the two topics so you can follow along a bit easier.

Cheers
Steve

If you look in my gallery, you can see the pictures that I'm refering to...

The tank is about 18-20" deep and the lights about about 1 month old.

The mouth opening is pretty open... doesn't seem loose though.

I've already seen the pics.

What about the water specs????... NH3, NO2, NO3, pH, temp and salinity?

How much water flow is in the tank?

Cheers
Steve

I have a Magnum 350....

All I have is the 5in1 test strips... they look okay (but I hate the strips)

Salt is at 1.023...

I don't have a temp gauge.

So do I, they're usually wrong
I would take a decent sized water sample to your LFS and get the full run down of tests done (not using strips) except the pH. The pH should be tested as soon as water is removed from the tank so you might want to get a better test ASAP.

Post the actual numbers (please not low/normal/high) once you have the results.

I'd honestly recommend replacing the strips completely. Salifert would be a good one to look for as well as Seachem.

You need to get one
Marine animals will do very poorly in water that is either too cold or too warm. 78-80¬į would be optimum.

What you have is the Condylactis Anemone. If you have high nitrate levels it will eventually die. Water parameters? They also dont occur with clowns in the wild. Just my 2 cents.
