sick annemone??

i bought a bubble tip about 3 weeks ago and was doing just fine until about a week ago he got caught in my skimmer pump. I caught it right away and he still has moved around a few times but the last two days he dosent open much and the tentilces are all shrivled up. his mouth is open really wide (approx 3"). I havent had fed him, i only all my fish plankton and frozen prime reef. Do I need to be doing more/less??? help

The only thing you can do is maintain optimal water quality. The anemone will unfortunately have to heal itself, there's really nothing you can do otherwise. A gaping mouth is definately not a good sign. If you do need a few water changes be sure you do smaller daily ones as apposed to large changes. If the chemisrty doesn't match properly, it will only stress the anemone further.
