Anemone Closed up

I have a Reef tank established over 5 yrs. I have a SeaBe Anemone that My clown fish after 3 months Hosted to which I was happy about. Tonight Though the anemone closed up to where Nemo can barely even get in I mean this thing was huge and now its like 90 percent closed. Is there something wrong or does this happen from time to time thanks....

Did you leave your lights off for a longer than usual amount of time? Mine used to stay closed almost all day sometimes when i did that. And yes check your fish mine was huge and used to eat my fish.. And he use to close up alot but when i brought him back everyone in the LFS said theyd never seen one so healthy... guess thats what you get when it gets 40 dollar snacks every 2 weeks. haha

Hes moving to where hes comfy. I would just let him be. He will go all over the place until he finds a place he likes.

My BTA will throw both of the clowns out by closing up for a few hours every so often. Don't worry too much.
