Is my anemone sick

Hi

I bought my green bubble a week ago now and i have noticed the tenticles are looking a bit deflated, sprawled out and looks a bit brownish. Does this look like its getting ill?





I fed it last week and i will continue once a week.
The tank is 180L with roughtly 25kg of live rock with two internal filters.
All the tests on the test strip are fine so just cheching to see what you guys think.

Thanks.

Neil

The lighting is Arcadia 2 x 35w 14000k fluorescent. I have got liquid tests for NH3/NH4+ and PH but the rest i do are on strips.

test strips are horribly innacurate,go liquid or go home

Those lights aren't adequate to support any anemone. You'll have to upgrade to at least a 4-6 bulb T5HO fixture to keep them.
