Can't ask a simple question without people making you seem dumb but whatever. Trust me if you saw this it would've thought the same. I did plenty of research before that's why I'm asking why it died. I get the lights now but that's not my fault cuz I asked my lfs first all these questions and I did everything they told me and it died. They told me my lights were fine so I'm simply asking a question

I have seen anemones go through power heads, cut into 4's, and generally look like death only to bounce right back. An anemone showing it's stomach is not an indication that it's definitely dead. I don't mean to make you look stupid, but learn from more than one source than the LFS. Believe me, there is more bad advice coming from stores than good.

LFS can give horrible advice.. Ask questions here and do as much research online as you can.. Also, how long has your tank been set up? They need an established aquarium.

it would have shown signs before it died if it was your lights and i do beleieve it would have lived longer maybe it ate somethign as was just regurgitating it. anemones and corals tend to do this and carpets are known to eat everything including fish. is it possible it was spittign out a sell from a turbo snail.

this is all just speculation there is no need to get defensive, an anemone wouldn't just die out of the blue like that it would show signs of stress

did it look somethign liek this?

It looked similar but it was literally becoming inside out. Like over the past couple days it got more and more deflated then yesterday throughout the day was turning inside out so that literally the stomach was almost completely out
