It just looks odd with its entire foot exposed. It's not bleached, though, so that's good.

When I got up and checked the tank this morning it had moved over and down the rock and hid its foot and has opened back up. Both of the clowns were also in it. Looking much better

Well, 2 VHO and 2 T5 won't be enough light for it. I see a nem on the floor of the tank and it is reaching for light. It isn't bleaching now, but it probably will. I'd move him up in the tank and pray he doesn't move off that rock lol.

Oh, and you have some cyano as well on a side note. Simply siphon it out. Increasing flow will aid in cyano issues, but they feed off of nitrates/phosphates and are common to see in a new tank. How old is your setup?
