We need a bit more info. How long have you had it? What kind of lighting do you have?

My guess is that's not enough lighting to keep an anemone. I tried under 4x 54w t5 and it wasn't enough. If you can't upgrade your lighting I would say it's destined to fade away. Can you re-home it?

From what I have seen from others that have bought from eBay the sellers do not guarantee the product that they are selling...

Slightly off topic but it may be something affecting te rbta. ( which was back to normal the next day)
I have some brown ....algea? Growing on my sand bed. Only on the sand bed. It's been there for weeks. In small amount. Never developed into red slime. Just gets dark brown throughout the day Ten later in the day/ evening it kinda fades slightly whether this is due to snail and crab traffic or not. I don't know. Also everytime I try to upload a pc it says I've exceeded my quota.
