quadricolor bubble tip

Not sure what's wrong with it. It just has been acting weird. It will deflate and look horrible and then do this (pictures) maybe I have too young of a tank. All my params are fine, maybe my lighting is wrong. Idk I have a coralife light on it but not the moon lighting. I will have the moon lighting in the next week when I upgrade my tank. Any suggestions?

Moon lighting is really for us for night viewing, and has little if any benefit for our livestock. You mentioned the brand as Coralife, but didn't mention type, wattage or number of bulbs. Can you provide more details?

Anemones do best in mature tanks at least one year old and that's still young but can be done....and like what was mentioned what kind of lights

The lights are nothing fancy. A coralife 65 watt and has two bulbs. What can I do to help it do well in there since it may be too young of tank?

That light will not support the anemone, not strong enough.

I have had it in the tank for about 2 months. I drip acclimated it over about 1 1/2 hours. Salinity is at 1.024 and the temperature is at 78 degrees. What can I do to help it better since my tank was a bit too young? Is there anything I can add to the water?
