Anenome question

My sebae anenome has been in my tank for two weeks. It appears to be doing great. It even looks larger than when I got it. It has a nice tan color with fluorescent green tips. I have only fed it twice. Both time I have given it a small piece of raw shrimp. It ate very well. It does have a pink skunk clown that is hosted in it.

Today it retracted itself completely. There are no tentacles showing. It was fed on Saturday. It is in a 30 gallon tank with 130 watts of light from power compacts (10k and Act) and a daylight NO fluorescent. Is this normal behavior??? BTW my tank params NH3, Nitrate and Nitrite are all 0 and pH is 8.2

The only recent change has been to add moonlighting that I leave on all the time.

anemones will do this every once in a while. If it last more then a few days then I would start looking at something in the tank, water, heat, lighting.

Thank you. I will keep a close eye on it. My poor clown doesnt know what to do with himself without his buddy. Do I have enough light. I was pleased to see him tanning up after being added to my tank and took this as a good sign after reading some postings in here. I assumed it was increased lighting because at the LFS the lighting seemed insufficient.

I believe that it does this before expelling waste from its mouth. It`s been a while since I`ve had one but that`s what I recall.
