New anemone not doing good.

I have a 90 gallon tank. I've had it for about a year now with only a few live stock in it. I put an anemone in it yesterday and the blower knocked him off his rock and rolled him across the sand. I moved the blower and put him on a different rock which he's kind of putting his foot on, but he looks deflated and flopped over. Click image for larger version

Can you tell us more about the system? Anemone are sensitive creatures that will continue to move around until they are happy. They can be easily stressed if not acclimated to a new system. They need intense lighting to survive, as they are photosynthetic like the trees and grass in your yard. This means they need multiple bulb T5HO, MH, or powerful LED lighting to provide the needs for them to survive.

In terms of getting him to attach his foot when going into the tank, turning off the powerheads and then turning them back on later on works pretty well normally.

That doesn't tell us anything about your system and in no way can help you without actual information.

that mandarin probably wont make it, what are you using to test? how did you cycle and how old is the tank?

sounds like not enough light IMO, possibly poor water quality (if tests are reading wrong). how often do you change water

I would say lighting is the issue here, if your white lights aren't working? What kind of lighting is it? Led or? Anemones need intense lighting to survive so if get that fixed ASAP!
