It used to fill up that WHOLE crevice it's in. And I read shrinking is the first sign of DYING. Halp!

What are your parameters and what type of lighting do you have?

I have good parameters, and.... Uh, my lighting is more than strong enough to support zoas (Sorry, the name currently escapes me.) It is still alive right now, some of the tentacles have shrunken in though... I'm worried about that :P

Nems require much higher light than zoas.........

How old is your tank, and what type of lighting? T5 (if so, how many bulbs), MH, LED???

What size tank?

A few weeks. Plus, I know the lighting is MORE than strong enough for zoas. It says "Aquatic
Life" on the side

You need to know exactly what you have over the tank. The brand (aquatic life)doesn't tell much of anything. Zoas and anemones are pretty far apart in terms of lighting. What are your "good" parameters exactly?

Erm... Sorry :P. My parameters are 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and about 15 nitrates. I have to get back to you on lights.

Update: It died this morning, from what I don't know. As far as I know, the lights were fine, I fed it silversides, my maroon clown was even hosting it.

Feeding it can cause it stress. And aquatic life makes t5ho fixtures. I think 2 bulb. If that's what you have, you'd need 3 or 4 of those to keep a nem.
