The last picture look good. I am sure he was stressed from shipping. Just leave him alone for now. Don't feed him until he is absolutely healthy. Feeding them when they are sick does a lot more harm than good.
Haddoni does not want a lot of flow, just need bright light. Flow should not move the anemone too much, especially should not lift the oral plate of this species.
Thanks, Can I ask you of a favor and help me identifying this colony (I’m having a little trouble with it) https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/help-identifying-colony.702175/

Oh man I did well on and off, but eventually started falling apart. Darn 2,5 day shipping, but now I wonder if the Haddoni has a pest too because my other anemones has been opening up for some time. My rhythms is 14 days 10% wc with good quality salt 3 times and the next af get the 3rd a 20% wc. Just did that yesterday but still no luck. Adding bacteria and reef base as adviced. Before the numbers police come after me, they’re all within the specs.
Then I started troubleshooting... is it my yellow mini goby that’s nipping at them, is it my sixline wrasse??? Decided to remove the last CUC blue legged hermit crab that was alWays hanging around up in the area. Oh well I guess my profile name is living up to it name.... today I saw some white markings on the hammer coral... soooo can anyone give some advice, I haven’t dipped anything lately not even in FW, because don’t wanna kill the good no harmful organisms... please see attached photo...

Did you say it was shipped via 2 day shipping? Who in their right mind ships a nem, a carpet nem 2 day shipping. It's probably very stressed and needs time to acclimate to your system.



I disagree. Anemones will do much better when fed, carpet anemones as well have quite the appetite. Once it settles in and foots down you can attempt to feed it.
I never feed my carpets, and one has almost double in size in a year
