Green Bubble Anemone

I recently bought a green bubble anemone and it was doing good in my tank until I woke up this morning it was under my rocks closed up which it is usually is open. It is nudged in between 2 rocks. Sometimes it opens up but it hasn't moved since this morning and it is getting no light my tank is over 1 year old all my parameters are good and temp is 78F. I can post a pic if needed.

They will move around on their own until they are comfortable.

Nems like to move around the tank, just make sure he has good water and he will move out on his own slowly, could be shock from the lighting he was under at the LFS to your tank.

Most stores here have maybe 1 T5 per tank, sometimes 2 if your lucky and I would be surprised if those bulbs are change more than once every year.

One of the main reasons they move is not getting enough lighting. What kind of lighting do you have?

This exact sudden movement happens with my RBTA I'm not to sure what happened. It is a new addition, so I expected it to move a bit. But this one is a bit looney, randomly separated and made a mess, now the one that's left over is small hidden, and just looks sick.
Is this what's going on with your GBTA?

tyul88- yours is dying. it's not liking your tank at all. an anemone splitting is not random. it's usually because of stress.
