Anemone solution required

Hello my aquatic friends I need help regarding my anemone. This is my 1st bubble tip anemone and I've had it for about 2weeks now. In that 2weeks it's found a spot in my tank, opened up and etc. my 2 percular clowns have hosted it aswel. BUT last night my anemone was closed up really small for some reason :s so What I did was left the moonlight on and went to sleep. The next morning (today) it was opened up and really happy and etc. I've just come back from work and its gone smaller then before and the mouth is kinda open. I've been told that's not a good sign for anemone. Soo what is the best solution?

Lighting:- white/blue LED
Temp:- 72/76f

It cood be that it just needed to poop. I have a gbta that opens and closes up all the time, while by rbta never does it.
As a side note...why do you think that is a bta? Looks like a sebae anemone to me.

From what you're telling me I don't see a reason to worry as long as the lighting is sufficient. I seem to recall a post about that already, so I'll call that covered.

But yeah, I see a tan sebae rather than a BTA. At the tip of the tentacles is a purple dot, right? Either way, I'd say you won out if you got a sebae for bta price imo.
