Hello! my anemone decided to walk behind the rocks about five days ago and I just yesterday moved the rock so he was facing to the light, and this is what he looks like now. I can’t tell if he’s dying, and I don’t know what to do for him! if anybody could give me any tips on helping him recover, or if I should have the light on higher or lower?? any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry, looks like it is on the way out. Just happens sometimes. Do you have the clowns still? Many times they do better with clowns. Keep tank stable, feed broadcast and wait it out.
yes it is still being hosted by my 2 maroon clowns, thanks for the reply

Man, the maroons may do damage at this point. Poor thing. I have had that happen. Had the BTA for over 5+ years and looked great, then it just went south and died. Crazy creatures. I doubt there is much you can do for it at this point though. Good luck!

Do you feed your anemone? They use nitrate in the water as a food source , it looks like it could be starving. Salinity is on the low end , I would aim for 1.026 and bump up nitraate / phosphate. These are just general guidelines , your anemone could also have a bacterial infection which it needs cipro treatment
 

Do you house a "Reef Safe" Angelfish in your reef tank?
