Worried about my anemone.

Hey Guys, well, i am rather new to the forums, this would be my first post!

Basically, i have had an anemone for just under two months now. the first month, he was doing fantastic. since then, he has moved on to the glass. [not higher up towards the light, just on the glass next to the rock he was on] anyway, he just isnt looking up to par.

In other words, should i be worried? Should he be removed from the tank before he nukes it?

All of my water params are perfect [tested myself] and i have t5 high output lighting.

Heres a picture, not the best, but i can always get a better one if you would like me too. Im new two anemones but his mouth is tight so im a little confused. let me know!

Im really getting into the help that this forum provides and plan on posting often!

I'd suggest putting nem in QT & treating w/ cipro. There's a great sticky at top of this thread about treating sick nems w/ cipro.

That's an H. Mag right?

He doesn't look that bad to me. Don't worry about him getting on glass. they like to move around and be high up and enjoy a lot of flow.

Take a better picture of his mouth and let us have a better look. If it's tight, do worry too much. He's not deflated. However, he could look better. How's your flow. I have t5's too and they love my lighting.

Well this tank is 3 months old but i have a few years of saltwater experience. He just ate a little today but his tentacle are not sticky. His mouth seems very tight so im hoping he will be okay

Tentacles not sticky isn't a good sign. I stand by my earlier post about putting nem in QT & treating w/ cipro.
