Its normal I believe, expelling waste. Its a tough process, you should see the strings mine would shoot out. It looks like a very tough process, give him a day or two more to pop back to life. Mine did this about 5 days after mysis feedings.

Oh apologies, most people say when they have the led/t8 combo the LEDs are just the blue lights or moonlight which aren't very beneficial...

Double brite LED's are not nearly sufficient for a nem. Even with those T8's.

Hi there, it would help if you have us full water parameters.
Nems need a mature and stable tank, 1 year and older.
You say your has been running 2 year so should be fine there.
Might be lighting, t8s give off little usable light and you say you have LEDs, which led lights have you got and what wattage are they ?

New nems tend to roam around to find their sweet spot (I have seen nems go in some wierd places) and where they feel comfortable, lighting, flow ect.

Ok so you have a 2 bulb t5 fixture and a marineland led fixture. It might live but that is pretty low. It does not look good but all you can do is wait and see.
