Question on Green Carpet anemone

Greeting all,

My girlfriend is facing some problem on her Green Carpet anemone. She had it for about 4 months without any problem. However, the past 1 week the weather around her house is about 91 degree F (33 degree Celsius).

Her carpet is starting to change its color from Dark Green to Pale Faded Light Green. Can anyone tell me what happen to it and how can we bring it back to normal?

I also attached the before/after photos. Many thanks guys!

It's bleaching from insufficient lighting. What kind of lighting does the tank have?

Also, noticed 3 different pairs of clown fish, 2 pair of occy in the first and a pair of tomato in the third. How many clowns are hosting this thing??? You should have a max of 2 per tank. Just an observation.

^^^This.

If you count the 2 cinnamon clowns in the other pics then its 7 clowns.... Just an observation, still 5 is too many.

I dont think the OP cares that he has a bad number of clowns in his tank... Multiple people have told him this in a differant thread and he obviously didnt listen. Its annoying when people dont listen to given advice

Ah i see. Well, hopefully the nem isn't lost to poor judgment (lighting) also. To OP, taking some good advice will get you ahead of the game, your playing catch up now.

I think the first post addresses the problem. Carpet nems require some of the highest lighting and the pictures suggest insufficient lighting.

The picture of the 5 mixed clowns is very striking and it deserves just as many comments imo because 5 clowns is probably a bigger problem than the bleaching nem. If there is only the 2 cinnamon's now then great, but i dont think u can blame anyone for pointing out the 5 is overboard.

Especially for 1 anemone. Having that many can stress them too.
