Anemone's retreat naturally at night or when there is a significant change in the light intensity. ie.. when the whites go off and leave only actinic or darkness. It is nothing to be concerned about as long as the daytime appearance of the anemone is otherwise healthy.

Never try to physically move an anemone. It will often do more damage than you realize. Only if the anemone is in danger of a PH or other impeller should you attempt to move it.
