Red Base Anemone + porcelain anemone crab

Hi there,

I have for a while a large green red base anemone(aka long tentacle, etc..) that has always been open fully in my tank, especially after I upgraded my lighting to the MH's. I have recently purchased a porcelain anemone crab, that as we all know form a bond with the anemones and should get along with it most of times. I have noticed that the little crab moves constantly inside the anemone, now I notice that the anemone has its tentacles more retracted most of the time now since the introduction of the lil fella.
Do you guys thing it is because the bond is "new" and would take longer for the anemone to get used to him, or maybe this kind of anemone is not suitable for the crab?
Thanks, hopefully it should get along, since the crab and anemone form a nice set in the tank.
