Is my anemone dying? Should i remove it from my tank?

Please see photo below. My anemone has been like this for one full day. It is fully deflated and my pair of clown fish seem to keep sucking on it every half hour. I am aware that the anemone can poison when dying however I don't want to remove it if its ok. Can anyone please help.

I would give it a couple days to see what happens. It's a tough call though because you want to protect your other inhabitants. Try doing a google search for "dead anemone" and other similar searches.

I will let you know what it looks like when I get home later today. Gutted that it looks like it has died. Thank you for you messages mate!
