    My Magnificent Anemone started going limp two weeks ago, after my clam sucked up a snail in its base and couldn't open and died. I did two 50% water changes, the weekend before last when it happened, and last weekend as well, Nitrates were on 10. I think I was also underfeeding it which didn't help, but I fed it twice this week.
    The clown is trying to get it to pump up but it is not really doing anything. I have only checked nitrates so far and they were on 10, and I have just done a 14% water change now. I have been moving the position of the flow pump to try and ensure it gets a reasonable water movement, but have only done this since it started hanging. For the two weeks before this when I put it in the tank, it was happy.
    Are there any obvious reasons why it would still be sulking?

    What are your parameters?
    What lights do you have?

    Temp 26
    Salinity 1.025
    Nitrates 10, but I have just done a 14% water change.
    I have got a Vertex SR260 light
    I have not checked the other parameters yet, I thought I would see if there was an obvious reason first.

    How long has it been in the tank, a month?

    Yes more or less, I can't remember the exact date I bought it.

    I think you may have a bit of an Ammonia and/or Phosphate issue with the clam dying. Anemone's are very sensitive to changes in water parameters and take a while to recover. Are you running carbon?
