Carpet Anenome dead

I've had it for about two weeks and it seemed fine moving around opening and closing with the food. But today started to look very deflated so I watched it and then by the night it's inside started to come out clear sign it was dead so I removed it right away. Why is it dead?
I have plenty of movement
I have fed it brine shrimp
My parameters are
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate:0
Ph: 8.0

Any input would help

What lights do you have? Possibly over fed it?

My lighting is poor which my lfs said was fine but from asking questions realized it wasn't strong enough for corals at all. But can over feeding really kill it?

Well lighting was your problem here.. Ive heard over feeding can stress them out because of the energy it takes to digest food

How often should you feed them? And is 14000k LEDs good enough? Like enough light?

You probably killed it. In the future, wait and see what it does before you decide it's dead and flush it. it was probably objecting to your water quality and/or lighting. Please refrain from purchasing things you are not sure you have the right environment for.
Do some research. Google it.

what type of 14000k LEDs, the color temperature is one thing but its the intensity that is another and that is more important to know

In the LED world, you get what you pay for, basically moon lights. how bright they are means nothing, it is the wattage and quality (Cree 3 watt) that determines the penetration. Nems deflated all the time, it was probably still alive.

I agree that lighting is an issue here, but also agree that it probably wasn't dead either. I know I freaked out when I first saw my nem poop! Research is the key here if a lesson is learned...
