i have a beige carpet anemone that has not eaten in a while and has scrunched up (shrunken) to about half his size and unfooted himself a couple of days ago. His mouth looks like a it has a zigzag pattern to it and his teneicles are shrunken and do not feel sticky. Is he dying or could he be splitting? Is there anything I can do for him to prevent him from dying? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Once an anemone loses its sticky and no longer holds onto anything with it's foot, then it is pretty much a sealed deal, it is, unfortunately, dead. Shrinking of the tentacles can be a normal reaction to changes in the tank, etc. There isn't anything that can be done to aid an ailing anemone once the sticky is lost, to my knowledge.
