Hi all,
I recently got my very first anemone without knowing anything about them.
After I came home i checked the forum and named him sebae anemone(crispa, malu??) i think its not easy to keep him healthy. And i think it bleached because its quite white. Anyway it was in a bare bottom glass tank and i don't think the lfs guy had any idea about anemones neither said never feed it. He settled where i introduced him and didn't moved yet. He accepts chopped scallop and fish meat.
My current concern is he stays in shadow of a rock where i put him. Should i carry him to more bright area? Or leave him alone?
My tank is 2 years old. Have 2 radions running at %65 (lps template). All parameters are in range except nitrate (40-50). Thanks in advance. Regards.

He is bleached some but looks healthy enough that he might recover.
The problem with them is allot of times their foot is ripped and you can not see that and it is the death of them.
Let him be he will move where he wants too...

Hard to tell from the pic if malu or crispa.. When stressed they look allot the same.
Easier to tell from the underneath..

If he doesn't move into the light he may continue to bleach. If this happens you may consider moving him to a better lit area of the tank.

It looks like Heteractis crispa. That species likes to attach its foot in a hole in the live rock.
