    Hi everyone
    I have a Anemone but I do not know what type of anyone nor do I know if it is healthy or not. It does not have any tears or anything but it has not grown in two months and it does not want to eat.



    This is a video of it.
    If you can help I would greatly appreciate.

    is there anyway you can direct some light to it? It looks relatively healthy, if you're worried about water parmameters maybe do a water change, otherwise what are you trying to feed the nennie? make sure the pieces are small enough to be eaten, My clown fish generally feeds his own nennie. Hake works well, krill, if he's not keen on eating make sure he's getting sugars at least from the Zooxanthellea ;)

    I spoke to @Barend yesterday

    I belive the anemone recieves direct afternoon sun light.
    The only parameter that was low was Mg 800ppm

    Zooxanthellae are the symbiotic algae that live inside the tissues of coral. They are photosynthetic and convert light into energy/food. The excess food they produce is used by the corals.
