Sorry for the loss but you probably did the right thing. If you were seeing the insides then it was most likely on its way out.

Sorry you lost it...like Schism already said, it was probably best to pull it before it fouled your tank. I've never heard too many instances where once the mouth was agape for an extended period, that it came back. Seems to be the last sign, before death.
Maybe next time, try a BTA. They seem to have a better track record than most.

My suggestion is 1) unless you know that an anemone is fragged from another already in captivity, or split from one in captivity, don't buy it; 2) unless you know exactly what #1 needs in terms of light, and care, and your tank can provide for it, don't buy it; 3) unless the person selling it knows the answers to #2, don't buy it.
LTA's can get BIG, live well over a foot wide given proper conditions.
Anemones can live for 30+ years in the ocean. These creatures do not belong in captive tanks.
I will add to the above that feeding an anemone too much or too often can also hasten its demise. They expend a lot of energy digesting the food that falls into them the in the wild or is offered by their hosting clown fish.
