Little hard to tell from the lighting, but it looks a tan color. If that's the actual color, then it seems ok. As long as its not white or clear looking, should be ok. It might darken a little more as time passes, but seems ok for now.

It is a tan colour. How often should I feed it, once a week? Can I feed it the same stuff I feed my fish, which is marine pellets and sometimes the frozen cube with brine and krill

Once a week is fine, but it should be something a little meatier for it to thrive. A piece of thawed silversides or raw shrimp about the size of the nem's mouth is good.

I would tend to think that he'll be okay, but I haven't had that happen, so I have no first hand experience. I hope so.

I heard that there's a problem when only the mouth area and the foot are damaged, the tentacles can fix themselves pretty quick, I hope that's true !

Had a nem shredded in a power head lost over half o it's tentacles and it survived. They heal up pretty quick. Remember that most nem can be propagated by slicing directly in half.
