It could be lighting, it could be water flow, it could be fish picking at it.

My cleaner shrimp likes to harass my Condy.
Sometimes it'll close up for a bit when the shrimp gets feisty.
They have a love/hate relationship.

Mine do the same thing. I tried searching the net for answers about it but there doesn't seem to much on that particular subject of Anenomes. Usually they do it when I turn out the main lights, and leave the antinics on for a couple of hours before I turn out the lights for the night. They don't do it all the time, it is sporatic.

Looks like it doesn't like all that light.

To test pH fluctuation, test pH first thing in the morning, prior to, or just when, the lights come on. Then test in the evening before the lights go out.
