My rbta looked healthy until today, it's very light in color however it is open. What could be the problem?

How long have you had it? What are your water parameters, lighting etc?

I have had it for about a month now. My levels all come out good, nitrate was a little high though. I do have a maroon clown that hosts the anemone, I don't want it to hurt the clown at all. As far as lighting I have a 10k and a t5 lighting system as well as an led bubble stone.

How many bulbs on your T5? It's looking a bit bleached out.

That's the problem right there. Anemones need much more lighting. They need a good 6+ bulb T5 fixture.
