Rainbow Bubble Anemone

Hey all,

My new Rainbow Bubble Anemone has shrunk up, which I have read happens from time to time and is normal. There is one thing I haven't gotten an answer for though, should there be a hole in his center?

Thanks.

I guess you could say like a mouth. Except it goes all the way through, I can see what is underneath him.

It sounds like it's missing its foot.

How would he have lost it? None of the other inhabitants of the tank are aggressive in any way, and he was fine when I got him.

It's usually not a good sign, how long have you had it? A gaping open mouth is also not a good sign. What's you set up like? Tank size? Lighting? Age? What are your current parameters?

Params are all perfect, 6 month tank, 55 gallon with a clown and some reef safe hermits. Also have zoas, palys, frogspawn, hammer coral, Xenia, and a clam. Lighting is marine orbit LED.

That LED won't support a clam nor an anemone. However, I think your anemone is just acclimating right now. It should start looking better as long as you have good params.

Actually I'm now fairly certain that it's dead.

That does look dead to me. How long have you had it? How did you acclimate it?
