Hi, Welcome to AA!!
What type of anemone is it? What type of lighting do you have? Size of tank? Other livestock? Can you post a pic?

A bulb anemone and an LTA are not the same thing. Your Yahoo link doesn't work and there is also no anemone pic in your Yahoo photo's either.

http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/firefly386/my_photos

You list nit= 0

Was that nitrIte or nitrAte?

Also, how did you acclimate the anemone, how old is your tank and what else is in the tank other than what's listed?

Cheers
Steev

The acclimation time is not that long but IME, anemones are not as sensitive to it as other sessile inverts. Could be something amiss there non the less.

Nothing you've posted so far lends to a problem with the exception of lighting. This part:

Suggests you have an LTA or other type of anemone but not a BTA. They are for the most part quite sensitive to light quality.

What kind of light/how many bulbs do you have to get 350 watts?

Cheers
Steve
