if its a snail its a mexican turbo, good algae grazers but knock corals over all the time because of their size.

anemones NEED a reef enviroment, by this i mean they need proper alk, cal, mag. levels as well as low nitrates (they are inverts you know) temp, flow, light and what comes along with a reef tank.

can you please post your exact water params?
ammonia, nitrite,nitrate,ph,temp,cal,mag,alk,SG (if you have copper/phospate) how much flow, what kind of lights. . .

The color of that anemone looks washed out to me. How long have you had it? How long did the LFS have it?

I heard that if the anemone is sticky to the touch its a good sign for a white one. I read that if they are sticky they still have the ability to sting for getting food. I have changed some of my water flow around and now the anemone isn't shoved up against the glass. It is more in the middle which allows it to stretch out more which I hope helps it get food easier.
