If there is stringy stuff coming from it, it could be just expelling waste. This is very common. But before I sat this is ok, please tell me your tank parimeters?

Ammonia?
Nitrite?
Nitrate?
Ph?
What type of lights do you have?
How long has the tank been set up?
What size is your tank?

Sorry for all the questions, but we need to know.

Your tank is a little young, and kinda small for an anemone but your levels look great. Can you post a pic?

Very true!

How long have you had the Sebae?, it is well on it's way to being bleached. I will warn you though, it does not look good for it's recovery.

How was it acclimated?
How is the tank chem?
Have you been feeding it/how often/with what?

Cheers
Steve

Please do not post multiple threads on the same topic. It makes it difficult to follow along.

Cheers
