anemone issues, pics and details inside

can you tell how can i tell if is in distress or is not doing well?? i have 4 turbo snails , 2 goppies, 2 star fish, 2 horshoecrabs , 2 clowns and 1 green coral.and the , what i assume is the anemone mouth is kinda swollen , is that a normal thing , last nite one of my clown was all inside of its mouth!!

pls tell me and it looks like it shrinked a little bit and also is a crab on it as well
and i bought it 2 days ago , kept it bag 30 min then place it on the floor of the tank , (crashed coral) and she been staying there , didnt moved , got it from petco, i know wasnt the smartest move but i had to start somewhere . thx


hadthe tank for about 5 months the water stats are good

the white stuff on the edge is a shrimp

It looks a little stressed with it's mouth gaping opened like that. How big is the tank, since carpet amenones get huge?
What, exactly, are your water parameters and what kind of lighting do you have?

With nems, when you feed them food that is too large for them they then have a difficult time expelling it afterwards. That is probably the issue you are running into.
