    its hard to tell. It looks pretty bleached to me. However the foot seems to still be ok.

    what are your water parameters?
    how long have you had your tank? the anemone?
    and lastly what are your lights for this set up?

    Try to feed it small pieces of shrimp, clam, muscle or octopus. tear of small pieces & put it as close to its mouth as you can. If it will eat it will make it :) It will take a long time but it will make it. Keep an eye on your water parameters...

    Try feeding if it doesn't feed and seems to get more bleached or shrivel up more is suggest taking it out carefully and checking the smell of it sometimes you don't notice its dead and it just decays in your tank.

    Some times it seems like it is hanging on the rock by a hair and sometimes it is completely stuck
