If your tank is the lesser of the 2 evils so to speak then definately keep him and try and bring him back to life. Like I said, it is acting healthy, attaching quickly and eating, so that is a very good sign. Just keep an eye on it, keep feeding it, regular water changes, and hope for the best. There is always a chance the anemone will make it even under less than ideal lighting.

If this is your first anemone.. be prepared for when it shrinks up and digests, brown slimey stuff out its mouth and shrinks up to almost nothing. This is normal, but freaks everyone out the first time. Mysis is a good food, but anemones can eat even bigger food like silversides once and a while as well (like 2x a month feed it a silverside)

Get an arrow crab. He cleaned my Bristle Worms out and then starved. Couldn't get him to eat anything else.

BTW, I love invert's if you can tell. Probably more than the fish.

They sell bristle worm traps that work amazingly well.

That bubble algae to me is like spiders to you... Something about bubble algae when I see it I think "KILL IT WITH FIRE!" LOL. I guess in reality if it doesn't bother you and your pulling them out whole and not popping them in the water when you can it isn't any harm to the tank to have them in there.

It is looking a bit better. Looks very similar to the nems at the LFC near my house. What color is his body? Is a nice health pinkish reddish color (Like the color of imitation crab meat? ).

As for the bubble algae, might want to consider getting a handle on that... unless that nem is really small, you have huge bubble algea

well tried the bristol worm trap well it worked they went in ate the bait, and then left,.. twice,.. there goes 14.00,

anyway........the anemone,
i finally got some raw prawns at the store and fed a piece of one,
and he doubled in size an hour later,..
the mysis shrimp wasn't doing it,..

i looked up on line and petco sells them as white anemones
looked on google and it also lists some sebeas as white and the look the same?
i also put a cf screw in bulb in a clamp on light and added that on him to help and he has moved a bit under a ledge from where he was,..
