That`s what I was afraid of. No where near enough lighting for an anenome. You`ll need a more powerful system. That`s why your anenome looks so bleached.You`ll need Power compacts, VHO, T5HO lighting.

I'm not sure what you mean about a "sand trap", but I think what is going on is that the anemone is purposefully crawling under the rock. You'd think if it needed more light, it'd crawl TOWARD the light. But since these things were at the end of the line when they were passing out brains to all the sea creature, they sometimes don't do that. Instead, they go hide in a corner and sulk to death.

I'll let someone with more knowledge about anemones tell you how much lighting you need, but you're going to most likely need VHO or T5HO, or a clamp-on metal halide. Power Compacts probably aren't going to get you what you need. And then you'll probably be fighting keeping the temperature stable due to the extra heat from the lights. Anemones in small tanks are are not an easy hobby.

Yes, no one addressed that a 10g is way to small for an anemone even as a species tank.

Don't think about getting a larger tank for the anenome. Need to just do it IMO - before you purchase new lights too for the 10g. You're asking for trouble sooner or later. Tanks looks brand new too. How old is it?
