Sick tulip anemones maybe ?

I have what I think are tulip anemones they came on the gulf rock that I bought but anyways how come some days they are big a beautiful and other days they look like they are dying? Even some days in the morning I will look at them and they will be big and full and then later in the day they are all pulled in? Does anyone else have this same experience? I thought maybe it was because they weren’t getting enough to eat or they did it after they just ate but I fed them last night little pieces of squid and then in the morning they looked nice and full and now they are all pulled in. I know they can move on their own so if they don't like the spot they are in they could move. It is more then just one of them that look like this and they don't necessarily look like that all at the same time. Any thoughts anyone?
