about a week ago i purchased a Heteractis crispa .
he used to stay open all the time but then he shrunk, didn't open and refused to eat, although his tentacles are turning from white to pink. Is he dying?
He's been this way for days now and I'm really worried.
Is there anything I can do?

he is at the bottom of the tank and he is not attached to anything.
the water flow is very weak because whenever he is in an area of higher flow he rolls around until he reaches a sheltered location.

Can you give us some more information about your tank and equipment? How long has this tank been up and running? Also need your water parameters, including salinity, temperature, pH, alkalinity, ammonia, nitrates, nitrites.

What other livestock do you have in the tank? What are you trying to feed? How big of portions? Do you know if this anemone was recently shipped? Can you get a picture?
