    Cant really see from the pic. Maybe try take a close up as well as one of the foot. But from that photo I would guess its a bleached bubble tip.

    @Barend what lights do you have on your tank again? Also how deep is your tank?

    It looks like a Sebae Anemone. However there is no such thing as a pure white anemone. Yours is severely bleached (as is the one in the posted video). You can try and nurse it back to health with regular small feedings but it will take time. What lights do you have as they do require strong lighting.

    looks like a purple tip badly bleached to me and starving. Bleached from the stress of capture and starving because the tentacles are short and stubby. I also got a pretty white nenny, only to find out that it was bleached and so I had the responsibly to nurse it back. It is now half white and half brown with purple tips and I have had it about 3 months now.
    Enough light and small pieces of hake daily should bring it back to the brown color it should be. By the way I can't help but notice that the gravel is the same color at the nenny, is this a new tank? (I don't want to jump to conclusions) If it is a old tank how do you keep it so clean?

    Hi Every one thank you for the help. My tank is 600 mm deep I have 4 T5's 2 white and 2 Blue and a 10 watt LED spot that i bought this weekend at the show. I know it is not the best but it gives a beautiful white deep light. Whe the sunn gets into the tank in the mornig and at night you do not see much of a difference in the light colour.

    I hope this will work he still does not take food but perhaps he eats the other food that I feed every day.

    My gravel is clean because the Clown fans it away from the anemone and also I do not have algea. In the beginning yes but after I changed to a DSB with macro algea I hardley have algea.
    Just a little bit on the back glass but that gets eaten quickley by the cleaning crew.

    Thanks for the links I will read it as soon as possible as I need to help this guy. and I do not want to give him away as that would be the same as giving up on him and failing which is not an option.

    Have a great day guys.

    Thanks again for all the help
