Does my anemone and clown combo look healthy?

I just bought this "couple" from my LFS last night. They had already been hosting when I got them. Is it normal and/or healthy for the anemone to be this big and open? Also, my clown looks REALLY still in this video, but as I type this he's doing his normal anemone fidget dance:

YouTube - Clown fish with anemone


all my levels are at 0
water temp 77-78
sg 1.022-24
kh 8
125 gal
90lbs of LR (some fully cured, some not, plenty of coraline on some of the rock)
30gal sump for additional live rock (20 of the 90lbs here)
t5 lights on for 7.5 hours (should I leave them on longer?)
6 weeks on the tank

What kind of lights are you running? Nems usually open wider if they are trying to maximize their light intake in lower light setups.

T5 all the way across for about 7.5 hours a day. The light is roughly 18" over the anemone. He settled last night and has stayed put. Seems fine, just wanted other opinions. Should I run the lights longer? I just don't want too much algae growing.
