i got a green bubble tip anemone that i got bout two weeks ago it seems to be doing fine until today its very tiny and it had mucus or sumthing like that coming out of it i feed it every two days. when i bought him he was under a rock like attached to the rock like its rock then him then the sand some people call it a sand trap i think? and i moved it to my tank obv. the after the fish store and i put it on top of the rock and it move down into the sand trap like at the store is this bad some people say it is and others dont? could this be why the anemone is acting this way?

If that is a BTA then he looks kind of bleached. What kind of lighting are you using? Picture is kind fuzzy but looks almost like a seabae anenome.

Yes that`s definitely a BTA. Is this a PC or T5HO or a VHO system?

Is this in the 10g tank you mention in your "My Tanks"? If so, then I'm guessing it's a PC, or Power Compact Fluorscent lighting system?

Melosu58 was primarily wondering (I think) how many Watts of lighting you have. My guess is you don't have enough, and the anemone is stressed and bleached - even in the picture where it is "looking good."

can you take a picture of the light? If its got pins on both sides, its a "t" something. A picture would clear alot up unless you can read a label on the fixture and tell what the wattage is
