    Is it very white or more brown in color...white is bad...

    You can try to spot feed it with a very fine mixed meat based feed...

    What are your NH3/NO2/NO3/pH/Alk....and how stable are they...?

    A pic of it would help.
    What kind of lights do you have?
    How old is the tank? What size?
    What kind of filtration?
    Is it the same as in your sig?

    These two may hold the answer. Anemone are fussy about Alk and phosphate may, if high, be interfering with algae.

    I have no algae at all & alk I dose Kent coral builder twice a week so it must not be bad.

    White isn't a good sign, means it bleached out. If you are able to spot feed it then start doing that ASAP as it isn't getting any nutrition from zooanthalea, not sure on spelling there. How about your temp, is that holding steady and has it ever wondered about your tank?

    Sounds like you have the tank dialed in....try feeding it...best of luck...

    Before I understood that the white Sebae's were actually sick/starved, we purchased one and sadly watched as it slowly died...we could not get it to eat any thing, from day one...
