What size tank and what type lighting do you have? Also do you have corals in this tank?

what size is your tank? usually it is not reccomended and condy's have an ugly sting towards other anemone's

your tank is way to small to house more anemone's. I wouldn't even add another condy to be on the safe side. most aquariums are in the range of 100+ before adding a second anemone due to space constraints.

I kind of agree that you need a bigger tank. I`m also concerned about your lights. If you dont have enough they will slowly start to deterioate. After a month they might look OK but after several months might be a different story.

Would have to agree. I would only keep one anemone in a tank that size.

how long have you had the condy? sometimes feeding, if you do, can override the need for excess lighting.
