Hi and welcome to AA!

What are your water parameters, tank size, and light fixture?

Welcome to AA!
What color was it? It looks like either it's recovering from being bleached or is starting to bleach. If it was white and turning darker, that's a very good sign.

Can you provide specifics? Nitrates, phosphates, and perhaps a link to your lights?

White is bad. There is no such thing as a healthy white anemone. Now that it's turning darker is getting healthy.

+1 ccCapt

As it gets healthy it gets darker, perfectly normal and shows good health.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
