Anemone dying?

Hi all! I got an anemone about 5 days ago. Looked perfect first 2 days. Shot some food to it.
It now has white area around mouth. Mouth opens and closes. It's much smaller and is releasing an orange stringy substance. It just shriveled up, (which I hear is common at first) it's the other stuff that has me concerned.
Whatcha think, or know. Thanks friends

depending on how the light they were under compares to the lights they are now under - the anemone can release some of its symbiotic zooxanthellae (it the new lighting is stronger) if light acclimation was done too fast the release of the symbiotic teammates resulting in bleaching

Have you tested your parameters? What kind of less? How did you acclimate the anemone do you have a picture of it?

Thank you, my guess (since he grows and reproduces corals) is that my lighting is not as good, yet, since he installed and knows it, i would think adequate. Appreciate your time.

He checked my perimeters, said they're adequate. Acclimated drip method, 2 hours. (water removal after 1) Then, as I said he looked happy little camper for 2 days. You'd think if the water were the issue he'd show signs right away?
