It's looking really bad. The pic is kinda hard for me to make out on my phone, but it's lookin like it's dying from what I can see. If it starts to look kinda like it exploded and is turning inside out, then it's on it's way out.

It's hard to tell from the pic. How long has it been like that? Anemone's shrivel up like that when they expunge or if they're not happy because of either placement or water conditions (stressed). Once those are rectified the anemones return to normal.

Some signs that your Anemone is dying are; foul stench coming from the water, tenticles not sticky or it appears to be melting. Also, if you notice something resembling spaghetti (white stringy stuff) coming out of it's mouth, then yes, it's fading so it's best to remove it from the tank..

That tiny anemone isn't going to hurt anything if it dies. What are your current parameters? Are you vacuuming that substrate on a regular basis? Possibly high nitrate?

I vacuum the substrate many times, water always come out pretty clean, but at the very bottom of the tank I can see a lots of brown- grey stuff, but those are hard place to reach with my vacuum...
Also the aquarium is been set up for a year
