    That doesn't look good...what size is you'r Tank...? you mention that you have more than one...probably chemical warefare...we do need to know the actual water parameters and also how long has this tank been running....also what lighting do you have...

    Your lighting doesn't sound right, a total of just over 100W is too little to keep anemones. what are the other 2 species that you have? Like Belinda said, it could be chemical warfare amoungst them...

    You seem to have a Long Tentacle Anemone ...that would leave me to believe that it's now also and most likely "bleached" as they require more Lighting....

    Hi Samandar
    unfortunately, with this particular anemone. It is quite common. Very little you can do. Generally this happens when it has been injured. Have you just put it into the tank or have you had it while. My suggestion is put it under a very high flow to keep the area clean.

    Should clear up.

    WOW...they are seriously bleached...I honestly can't say if you can save them....you definately don't have enough light for them.., you need to do a bit of reading regarding Anemones and their care..they look in bad shape..
