Looks like it's stretching for light. What kind of lighting? If bulbs then they probably need replacing.

Yes, it seems quite brownish. Is that just the camera?

It's under TMC 500's I do have a 600 lying in wait, maybe I should swap then over.
I think the pic does look browner than real life.
As for the stretching, I've never seen him do it 12 months.
I've recently lost to host clowns, could this be the reason?

I don't know what a TMC 500 is.
You lost to host clowns? I don't know what you mean by that.

Sorry, TMC aquaray LEDs.
I lost two clownfish recently to white spot.
They used to live in the nem, now the nem is not getting hosted so it seems to be stretching and growing
Ps I'm in the uk

Sometimes clowns stress anemones enough to stunt their growth. It could be as simple as that. Why do you think the clowns were stressed to the point of being overcome by ich?

I lost everything to ich a few months ago, but that's a different topic.
Clowns were last to go and I was sorry to lose them the most

You mean this guy?
AquaRay | LED Lights | Aquabeam 600

And if all the fish were lost...what was that from? Parameter issues aren't friendly to anemone either.

Two of them over a 190 bow front.

I bought an already stressed PB tang, without the space for a QT I lost
PT tang
Common clown x2
But my hi fin goby survived it,
2 months later and I've just got a pair of juvenile clowns again ( no interest in the nem as yet)
