it just looks like its tuckign in tight it might be from stress, how long have you had it for? did your maroon clown just randomly stop hosting it and then it shrunk, if so it might not be getting food as the clowns usually bring it to them and feed the anemone they host, i know mine rose bubble tipped lets me know when it needs feeding, it'll shrink up a bit and keep its bulbs close together, i feed it with a syringe and mysis and then the next day its back open to its 5" self flowing in the current
Well I did add a power head days ago to provide more flow and that's when I saw him moving up under the rock I flipped over. He was deflated. It seams as though he was stressed because he was starting to detach from the rock today so I moved I'm into his own container away from any inverts and the maroon clown. Nothing can get to him.
I think that the clown hosting in him since day one didn't give him time to adjust. So he is stressed. I have never had one before so I don't know how bad looking they can really look when they shrink up.
