LTA

MY long tentacle Anenome which was brown has lost it's brown/ purple color n has not filled up the way it use to In several months....

Although I just recently had a nitrate spike but his behavior started sometime ago n don't think this had anything to do..

Water parameters have been normal , temp, Lighting n flow has not changed.

This behavior is also true for my green bubble Anenome...which is on the oppsoite end of my 220 g tank

Theie foot still sticks to crevice n not moving around as I would think they would for not being happy

What are your thoughts?

Ps. I also have a condy Anenome which seems to b doing fine in color , growth n not moving around ..

they weren't even healthy then. they are losing color when you got them. i would be feeding them at least once a week. in many cases, this will provide enough nutrients to help them recover.
