Dead anemone?

Does anyone know how to tell if any anemone is dead? Mines not moving at all and has lost a lot of color and I'm pretty sure it's dead.

Is it still attached to rock? My green bubble tip turned brown and shriveled up. After a couple of days I decided to take him before it messed up my tank If it looks the same after a few days I'd say it's probably dead

Can you tell us more about the tank? Current parameters? How about a picture? What kind of lighting is over the tank? How long have you had it?

An anemone isn't dead until it falls apart.

Some times anemones will shrivel up and lose the majority of its colour up to a day for a totally natural reason. When they do this it is because they are either doing a 'water change' or they have been overfed and are rejecting some semi digested food that you fed them earlier. And as was said before anemones don't truly die until they fall apart. If they haven't fallen apart yet and they don't look normal then they are unhappy or their doing on of the things stated above.
