    Check this afternoon when you get home again. They can deflate while taking a "poo". Getting rid of the leftovers

    You said you got MH lightning.
    What wattage?

    How deep is the anemone under water?

    2-150 watt metal hightlights and it has settled in at about 40-50 cm under water

    That should be fine, they like strong light and decent flow. As Riaan said, they do tend to deflate sometimes.
