Sick anemone

Don't really know much about anemones I recently purchased a magnifica and it's white with purple tip I have just found out that it is bleached. The tenticals are shriveled up and it doesn't look the same as when I brought it. I'm pretty sure it is dying. I have a maroon clownfish that is hosting it at the moment, if the anemone is dying will it affect the clownfiah

It is quite bleached. That nem needs some high lighting ASAP!!! Don't try to feed it much at first, they use a lot of energy digesting. If its mouth isn't gaping open, then you have some time. Put it at the top of the tank near the light. What kind of lights do you have? I'm really hoping its good lighting. If there is any zooxanthellea left, they can multiply and bring the color and health back, but it's gonna take time and really good lighting. Good luck!

I've heard that some peor have had luck bringing them back. The open mouth is not a good sign, but don't take him out until you're sure it's dead. It'll start to spit out its stomach when it's dying.
