Dead puffer and or anemone can nuke your tank. Remove immediately and start doing water changes.

If its been a month since your last WC I'd do a large change. And test you water. Post your test results and all tank equipment info.

So what is your nitrate level?

Often a dying nem can nuke a tank with toxins. Do LARGE water changes and try running some carbon on the tank.

Also, especilly if you are keeping sensitive species like anemone or corals you really really need to be testing more frequently and changing water out weekly.
