Condy Anemone Problems

Have a condylactis anemone and almost everyday around 4 pm he shrivels up. When I wake up in the morning, he's back to normal and looks very healthy. Is this normal?

I know my phosphates are a bit high, could that be the problem?

How long has your tank been set up? What happens around 4, does lighting auto switch, auto food...so on.

Just a thought....

It is when it is pooping, but it does it everyday. Is that normal. Nothing routinely happens around 4

It should be said that they are more unlikely to host a clown. But, in actuality, in the wild they host maroon clowns. They can host other clowns in captivity, just not a high chance from what I've read.
