How is the anemone doing? Is it still looking so rough and not inflating?
You never got back to us with the lighting that is over the tank, though not the reason for what is currently going on with it, I suspect it might not be the intense lighting that anemone need to survive and be a small part of the problem.
How long was the anemone in the tank before the original picture was taken?

Sorry for the updates, currently it is looking rather healthy. It does go thru occasional flat unflat modes. My lighting is LED current USA orbit brand.

What it worries me is the mouth. It appears to be open with some gap.

An open mouth on an anemone is a sign of stress. Was he drip acclimated to the tank before being thrown in? The clown trying to bond with it probably isn't helping at this point, as it is a stressful relationship between the two.
And your lighting is this guy? Current USA Orbit Marine LED Saltwater Reef Lighting System: Aquarium LED Light Fixtures

Yes the lighting is that one. I just placed it in the purchase bag and let it soak in tank for 15 mins.

The crown fish died few days ago for no reason. My parameter is all 0s, I am using rodi water in a 55 gallons tank.

My tank has one yellow tang, 2 green spot puffers, couple of crabs, one cleaner fish, 2 demsel, 1 snowflake eel, few corals and 2 engineer coby.

I'll be honest, with a tang and 2 puffers, that alone is enough to have elevated nitrates in a 55. If you are reading 0, i'd suspect either a bad/not done correctly test or you have some cyano or algae growth going on that is giving you a false reading. That is why your anemone is stressed.
As for the light, not familiar with the unit and read about it. Some say it is fine, others say not...supposed to be great for soft and LPS coral, but no one can agree on SPS and other things that require high intensity lighting. I think it might be fine if we can get the parameters stabilized.
I'd suggest returning the tang and one, if not both, puffers.

I do have some green and brown algae around but in very little amount. I may place the puffers back to the 10g tank where those came from originally. They are about an inch long.
