i don't know what that is, but lets start with the basics- what size tank do you have,what are your water parameters, and what kind of lighting do you have over it?

Looks like that might be a sebae anemone. It doesn't look unhealthy, but they are extremely sensative.

Same questions as Mr X.

any detectable nitrite is not good. i would say to do a few more waterchanges. meanwhile, a longnose butterfly will outgrow that tank quickly.

what are you using for filtration?
what lighting do you have over your tank?

It would appear that your tank has not completed cycling yet. Please take all livestock back to the fish store for now.

Your tank is too small for the butterfly and you do not have enough light for the anemone. There are many other choices you can make. You just need to research what fits.

Please take a step back and read the articles on this site about setting up a tank and cycling it properly

Oh, and while we're at it...

I agree with your tank isnt done cycling. Nitrite is a reading you see only whene your cycling. Anemone like established mature tanks. Yours looks a little unhappy and the area your concerned about looks like some natural color coming back.

I'll ditto what has been said. You aren't through your cycle and anemones should be put in established tanks (8+ months old) As Cmor said returning all your livestock would be the best option. You need to complete your cycle or you could easily stand to loose everything you put in the tank until it is finished.
