Seabe anemone help

Ok guys I need some advice. I just bought a white with purple tips seabe anemone yesterday. He's been in my tank for 24 hours and it seems like his tentacles are short and stubby compares to the wife open and swaying when he was at the store. What's the d? I had my water check before I bought him... 1.026 for salt ph is good temp is 78 degrees and the lighting is 165w Fill spectrum LEDs. I have them at 70% white and 50% blue. He seems to be very modest since I put him in the tank. Any suggestions? Here's a pic....Click image for larger version

yes the store may run 70/50 with there light but no 2 lights are the same
in other words if I ran 70/50 they most likely would be a hell of a lot stronger

like I said lighting is a key factor

I can get gas at 1 station my jeep runs good

I get gas at another station with same octain it my engine pings same thing
