Unhappy Anemone

I recently bought a Bubble tip Anemone which doesnt seem happy at the moment. Parameters are as follows

Ammonia 0 ppm
Nitrite 0 ppm
Nitrates 5ppm
Phosphates 0ppm
Ca 540
Mg 1500
Alk 8.12
Salinity 1.026
temp 79

When the nem was in the store it was 5-6 inches in diameter now it shrinks to almost nothing at night and during the day its 2 inches at best. Any thoughts as to what I should check to make this guy happy?
