    Looks like a very sickly "mystery" Heteractis species. Some might say H. malu, but that's not really what it is. Nobody has really identified them so far that I am aware of. Interestingly, these also come in yellow colors that actually seem to be natural and not dyed (some may be, however).

    thanks abunch for replies ..
    when i saw this anemone the clarkii that i wanted to buy was in there and dominated it , so i bought it too with the clarkii ... that day the owner wasn t there and the seller knows nothin bout it and told me just to feed him once a week with raw shrimp . and nothin more !
    it s a few week and he doesn t eat .. i tried to feed him with some shrimp but i didn t see any reaction from him , even when the clarkii wanna feed him , he doesn t react any an the poor fish have to put the food 10 times in the anemone mouth and he still unloose it ..
    till 2 days ago i asked the owner and he told me the anemone is : beaded sea anemone (heteractis aurora) i searched on net and it wasn t looks like that so i called the LFS owner again but he was pretty much sure about the name ..
    so what do u think ?
    why he doesn t eat ?

    That sucks, usually anemones react quickly to food. I don't have experience with that type of anemone but the ones I did have I used to thaw some mysis cubes in a cup of tank water and then turn off the flow in the tank and use a turkey baster to gently squirt food all over the anemone. It would always react and close up quickly though.. always used to be a laugh because it looked like it was licking its fingers clean when it put the tentacles in its mouth to suck the mysis off the tips.

    Nope, not H. aurora, either. Beyond the tentacles, it doesn't really fit the characteristics of H. aurora.

    Most species available will do best at around 82 degrees. Some prefer slightly warmer temps (namely Cryptodendrum adhaesivum)

    Try to see if it eats pieces of fish or crustacean flesh. Just make them small and hope for the best. Keep all the other parameters where they should be, as well. I can't tell from the pic, but is its foot attached? IF so, that is a good sign--if not, then the opposite.

    i tried to do that but no reaction from him , i talked to lfs and the owner said it doesn t eat much and that much that clown give it is enough .
    and yes he has a orange like foot , he walk around the tank several times the few first days but after that he attached itself to that rock since now .
