    My Anenome closes up every now and again for a couple of minutes an then opens up again. It normally happens late into the light dimming process. What is the reason for this? 1st picture is how it normally looks.

    Not sure of the exact reason but it's perfectly normal, mine tend to stay closed up most of the night. You've got a very nice healthy looking anemone there.

    The Anemone is doing extremely well. Just seems to be an evening thing. He slowly closes then re-opens before final sunset. Stays open in the dark
