    If it doesn't want to eat then that's all you can do. Sometimes they just don't want to eat. I'm assuming you have been feeding it alot and maybe it is trying to digest some food. Having its mouth out doesn't mean that it is hungry. I wouldn't woory to much about it. Under your lighting, it doesn't need an abundacne of food anyways.

    I really wouldn't be too worried about it. It may just be a little bit stressed from the change in light. If they are at all stressed they don't want to eat. That doesn't mean it is going to die or anything. I'd just give it some time. Anemones should look and act healthy most of the time but sometimes they don't.

    This is the one that was stuck on your arm .. right? Maybe it's full after feeding on you ... or maybe between bitting you and the lighting issue it needs a break.
