Bta looks dead

When I went down to feed my fish and turn down the lights I noticed my bubble tip anemone was flat and the oral disc was out. This is my first anemone and I'm hoping it isn't dead. My clownfish just hosted in it and they are just swimming above it now. Please help!

Tell us more about the tank, lighting, how long you've had it, current parameters, and a picture. Sounds like it is stressed for sure.

I have had the tank up for close to a year.
Parameters are all good except for the salinity is around 28
I have a coralife t5, elive track led, and fluval eco bright led.

What are the numbers on your parameters? You say they are good, but your anemone says otherwise.

How long have you had the anemone and how long has the tank been set up?

could be because of the salinity being a little high , the lights could be another reason ,
another thing is the clowns may have been to rough on it ,
my clowns annoyed my green long tentacle nem and it closed up and hid for almost 6 months , there sensitive
