We are talking about the one off to the right in the foreground right??

By your description it sounds like a Macrodactyla doreensis aka corkscrew anemone.

The pinkish one near the back looks likea rose anemone aka Entacmaea quadricolor or also bubble tip.

I agree as Hara stated earlier. You do not have nearly enough light for either of these anemones. I hope you will consider returning them for store credit.

Cheers
Steve

Guru,
I don't think my flower pot has more than 12 tentacles, but I'll count it when I get home (I'm at the office right now ). Would it be possible if it's regenerating, cuz' this morning I see some small polyps coming out from the emptied column. Maybe it's the old one that shrinks. I'll compare it to my picture later. How does the flower pot reproduce anyway? Could it grow its own pot/coral like snails do?

Thanks for your concern Steve. Yes, it's the one off to the foreground right.
I really want to keep those anemones. So I'm thinking of adding another compact light, but I don't see how could I retrofit it to the hood of my tank. (FYI: it's 18 gallons eclipse. It's not designed for saltwater fish. Note that I have to take off the original light, and retrofit a 35 watt compact light in it. I couldn't get any larger watt of light that will fit in it). Should I take off the hood all together? or should I get a new tank that will cost me a lot of money, cuz' i have to buy a new set of light, and the cycle will have to start all over again.

The hood itself is not imperative unless it is keeping "jumpers" in. If you can retrofit something in a PC format that allows you to add onather Pc strip, that should do the trick.

Buying a new tank does not seem to me all that practical.

Once the tissue has receded, that is usually it. They may begin to grow over the dead skelaton if the decline reverses itself though.

Cheers
Steve

Hoopsguru,
you are right, the flowerpot has 24 tentacles on each polyps. So, it's that hard to keep Goniopora.

Steve, you're also right. I think I will lose the entire polys within 2 or 3 weeks with this rate of loosing tissues.

Well, my homework is to put another strip of PC. Again, thanks alot everybody.
