Is my bubble anemone dying?

I had my bubble anemone for 3 days, went to the shop and brought some shrimp this morning and when i got back home from work is closed up. Last night i saw some white particles around its feet. Is that normal?

It's not dying yet. What are your parameters? How old is this tank? What size tank and how many fish are in it? What lighting are you running?

I don't think they make a 12" t5 bulb. Sure it's not t8? Regardless one t5 is not enough for a bubble tip nem, plus the tank is to young and unstable.

I think he spoke prematurely. You need to check your parameters.

No. What are your ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels?
Also your alkalinity and PH.
