Keep you water parameters in check. He should recover. Give him a live rock to anchor on. Put the rock in the sand bed. He maybe discharging waste. If his mouth is gapped hes still under stress.

Def stressed out. What are the parameters in the tank and what kind of lighting do you have?

A couple weeks ago you were battleing Cyano in your brand new (albiet used) tank. That indicates water quality issues which MAY be part of your problem. Then as soon as you put you anemone in your tank it started moving about, and the question was asked about your lighting (in the other thread). You never answered and provided this CRITICAL piece of information.
A moving anemone is an unhappy anemone. It could be because of the water quality, or it could be because of insufficient lighting. Or it could be because of something else. But if you wont provide answers, we cannot help.

Lighting is borderline, but will sustain probably. I'd point to water quality issues in a freshly established tank.
