I dunno what happened to my GBTA. How do i know if it is dying or not. This morning at 1pm it was nice and full and i came home 4 hrs later at and it looks like its all shriveled up. It is still attached to the rock. I added it to my tank 3 days ago. I just checked all the parameters and this is what i got

Temperature: 80 F
pH: 8.2
Salinity: 1.025 SG
Alkalinity: 3.20 meq/l
Calcium: 475 ppm
Nitrate: 0 ppm
Phosphate: 0 ppm
Nitrite: 0 ppm
Ammonia: 0 ppm

I have it under 2x175MH and 2x65watt PC. All my other corals are perfectly fine. What is happening?
I took a few pictures of it here it is. Please let me know what is going on and if it is dead so i can get it out of my tank. I think if it were dead though that there would be some spikes in my parameters.

Anemones are tricky. I would not get worried just yet. I would just observe the anemone for a day or so and maybe try to feed it a small piece of clam, squid, or other suitable food. You could also try changing some things like water flow and light to see what makes it happy. Please let me know how it goes. Good luck!
