Brown is better. The white indicated that it was probably bleaching. It looks good now so keep up the good work!

Most anemones you get are white from the lfs due to the extreme stresses they encounter on there way there this is what hobbyist consider bleached while most die in captivity due to water quality poor lighting and immature tanks ,some do make it from the looks of yours it is comming around rather nicely and seems to look healthy. Hope this helps ..nice anemone by the way...
