So I bought a long green tip anemone a month or so ago and has been fine up until the last few days. I know they have days where they don’t look to good but this look is a new one for me. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

That look like a BTA that is starving. I would make sure you provide good water condition, stable, pleny of light and feed him, only tiny amount of food, about the amount of mass of about 5-10 mysis shrimp at a time, every other or third day until he is a little better then you can feed him more.

Funny you say that. When I do feed my clown will actually take food to it as well. So I don’t understand if that makes sense. I know it’s eating but idk if it’s enough or too much
