Gaping is when the mouth is wide open. Do you think it was expelling waste or zooxanthella? Half a silverside is way to much, you have to remember in the wild they only catch bits and pieces or food the clown takes to them. They seldom get a big meal. I feed a pea size mashed a couple of times a week. Calcium and magnesium is very important to test for as well as dkH and ph. Wild caught anemones don't live very long in our home aquariums clones on the other hand do wonderfully well no matter it if it a slice and dice or a natural clone.

I only feed it half once a week. Is a split a good thing? And I'll just keep an eye out over the next couple days and see what happens

Usually they don't look that bad before they split.

It's turning itself inside out which is not a good sign. Do not feed it. They don't need it.

Anemones in Captive Systems by Bob Fenner
"Underfeed, underfeed, don't feed! Underfeed, underfeed, don't feed! Most losses in captive systems are the result of over-feeding. How many more times do I feel I need to write this? Bunches! Some anemones have been kept for YEARS without any intentional external feeding. Know your stock! Many anemones (especially larger species) are detritivorous (a polite term meaning they eat poop), planktivorous, and largely chemoautotrophic/photosynthesizing species/individuals that hobbyists try to over-stuff with meaty/prepared foods. My bid for largest cause of loss of anemones is the consequences (lack of oxygen, hydrogen and other sulfide production...) from over-feeding. Cut it out! Within normal temperatures and other conditions, most can and do do well on weekly feedings. If you're going on vacation, leave them alone."

Good that things turned out well. But I would take the advice above about feeding him.
