Shrinking

Anemones that do not receive adequate light to maintain their populations of symbiotic zooxanthellae that provide them with much of their nutrition usually shrink gradually. The shrinking involves consumption of tissues as a means of making up for the deficit in energy7 from the zooxanthellae. If an anemone is shrinking, increase the light intensity and feed the anemone at least once per week to promote growth. Try a variety of foods. If the anemone refuses food do not try to force feed it. Just insure that it is getting strong light.
