I've seen a lot worse make it through. The long foot just means he's reaching for flow/light. My BTA has it's foot WAY under the rock, and opens up well above it. He probably just likes that spot for the foot. Yours should, at some point, walk out.

Another thing is, clownfish could really agitate a new anemone. Ideally the anemone isn't hosting a clown until it's well established. If your clown is just smashing into it constantly, it might take a long time to adjust and establish itself. You can try using a big acclimation box to put the clown in temporarily. TBH clownfish could care less, whereas an anemone is way more sensitive when first being introduced.

Maybe get a breeder box, put the clown in there for a week and let the anemone figure itself out?
