anemone

my friend recently had a major tank problem, so he had to give me his long tentacle anemone and false clown.
He woke up at 4:30 to find that his 55 gal had broken at a seam and was spilling all over the floor. He put the anemone and fish in a half filled 10 gal hexagon tank outside, and called me. I came to his house after school (after making sure my water was fine at my lfs) andpicked them up. (along with about 20 lbs of live rock and a powerhead. The clownfish died this morning, and i am wondering about the anemone. How long does it take for them to settle in/ stop laying on the bottom?
How can you tell if it is living?
How much and when should i feed it?

Sorry to hear that.
What are your current water paramiters/how long has your tank been up and running? Was the 10G tank already up and running?
