I'm assuming it's upside down? If so, flip it over and move it towards the rocks so it has something to attach to. Don't try to feed it. It takes alot of energy for an anemone to digest food and it can hurt a sick anemone.

Ya you shouldn't leave it upside down. Pick it up and put it on a rock and wait. I touch my ritteri all the time and don't get stung so you should be fine. Put gloves on if you have a problem.

I put it on a rock close to the light. It just shrunk more than half it's size & was turning gray. I think it's time to DC it.

RIP. I feel really bad for my beautiful maroon clown. I'm thinking of getting her a partner

My purple tip just died too. My heater broke on me and water temp got down to about 65 one night. I bought one the next day but it was too late. It did the exact same thing too. Excreted all kinds of crap, then flipped upside down and wouldn't stick to anything. I lost it 3 days later. Found out later that they are one of the hardest to keep, and aren't very hardy so anything could have set it off.

Good luck, my Lfs thinks maybe I have just a tiny bit of copper. He said that any will do that. I decided in a frogspawn instead after a few water changes and getting my water tested again.
