Anemone

Is this anemone dying or pooping?

I don't know much at all about nems.. so I can't answer your question... it looks healthy overall... not sure what is going in with it though...

I'm sure a more knowledgeable person will pop in... what are your water Peramiters and can you give us some details in your tank
Ro/di water?
Other live stock in the tank as well


What kind of crab is that? I like the looks of it.

I hope everything is ok with your nem

And how old is your tank?
Looks pretty new... I know they recommend a tank be 6 months to a year old before you put a nem in there

TBH the nem is probably a goner, IMHO your tank is to young and needs time to "settle in" before you try again. and yes that is a aiptasia on the big rock, at least 2 of them

They are more of a pest than anything...
They are little anemones that reproduce quite frequently and spread through out your tank.. a peppermint shrimp may eat them...it's hit or miss.. some do .. others (like mine) won't touch them

More than likely it is puking it's guts out (litterally) along with its Zooxanthellae..
The tank being young.. the water chemistry isn't stable enough to support the anemone...
If you do a search on the forums about is anemone dieing?
It will pop up alot of post of very similar casualties due to a young tank.. I've read a few that go pretty in depth of why...and what causes it..

I just recently got a rose bubble tip and a long tentical anemone for my tank... the rose is still hidden in the rock work.. I've had her for about 2 months now... my LTA is happy and hosting my female clown.. I've had it about a month
My Rbta is about 3 inch diameter
My LTA is about 9 inch diameter
My tank has been up just system of a year

My haddoni is literally doing the same. I should say has been for months. Ive done everything to get my nitrates under control, nothing seems to work. Its not any better or any worse. I am currently letting it ride, might take it to my lfs and see if they can help.

Usually when they start turning their mouths inside out like that it's a bad sign but keep your water stable and try to ride it out keep us posted

Post this in the clownfish and anemone forum. People are treating their anemones with Cipro for bacterial infections. I bet if you follow the treatment plan, your anemone will survive.

They don't like to be crawled on.
Is that an LTA, A BTA, or a carpet?
I can't tell, looks shrunk, deflated?
