Anemone closed up

Found my sebae anemone closed up like I've never seen before. All parameters steady except for a slight drop in Ph from 8.3 to 8. Could that be the reason why?

What to do with it leave it as is?
Try to get or out?

Looks like lights out so probably normal. They can pull themselves under the sand. Nothing to worry about.

Picture during the day? how long have you had it?

Had it for a about three months now. Noticed it was closed up just a few minutes before the lights went off. Quickly took water sample to test and before I got back to take a picture the lights had gone out

Do your lights ramp down? When I kept BTA and my lights were ramping down in the evening hen it got to a certain point and they would call it a day and close up for the night before the lights had completely gone off.

As long as they are open during the day and not deflating and have a tight mouth don't worry.
