I'm assuming he will recover because the second picture he attached himself to a rock so hopefully he survives as you can see how many less tentacles he has now

If he is moving, he isn't happy. Either wants more light or flow. It is usually a light issue with anemones. Since he didn't get sucked in it should recover as long as lighting is sufficient and parameters are spot on.

Well, clowns can irritate them sometimes by playing too rough.
