will the anemone die?

guys newbie here i have an anemone that is settled to one place. then one day this anemone that i bought recently move also next to the anemone that is been settled to that place. in short they stay in one place.. my question is that should i move the other one to prevent sting to each other what are the signs of dying and sting wounds if ever? im concerned to my recent anemone cause its a beautiful anemone compare to the other one... but i like them both cause they differ to each other... i dont want them to die so help me guys.. they are both different species of anemone both are bubble anemone but different in colors one is a green one is maroon with some with spots on it..

they will move eventually they won't fight over a spot but..... its probably that spot has the best conditions for them. what size tank do you have how much rock?

got a ten gallons... a gift from my uncle... i have a lot of rocks. but i taught that if they get close to each other they might get sting to each other cuz they are both bubbles but different in colors and size.

how do i know if an anemone is dying ? i recently bought an anemone and when i saw it from the pet shop he spreads his tentacles but now he is always close like a tomato or when he spreads his tentacles they're too little not like when i saw it in the pt shop and he always stays in a very deep location of the aquarium ? my tank is a 75 gallon tank
