Help? Inside out anemone?

Is it dying and is it worth keeping in tank? Or flush?

No it looks like it folded in half at the foot. It was a happy little anemone this morning until it decided to move towards the filter intake, so I moved it and it decides to die.

Why do you move the anemones? I remember you did this for your other one. And I think your tank isn't established enough based on what I remember from your other thread. There could be other factors to why it's doing so poorly other than you moved it.

I am holding it for my lfs (my job) because they have no power. My h. Magnifica is still doing fine, but I did not expect my boss to give me so many of these anemones and fish to hold. I had three inhabitants in my tank, now I have 5 anemones, 7 fish, two flame mussels (? Are they even called that), two starfish, some sort of crab/shrimp/lobster, and feather dusters. All I have been doing for last few days is water changes with live sea water. I really hope power goes back on because I am having multiple heart attacks.

Flame scallops. They'll die too. Unless they have a ready supply of phytoplankton 24/7.

Well it was either my tank, or 45 F water tank with no circulation or light for past 6 days. But the prognosis sounds great. I am excited to be dealing with further biological warfare that is going on. But back to original question: should I flush the anemone? Its insides are now back inside of it and its moving its foot. Should I risk it and collect its bodily remains throughout the tank tomorrow(if it dies)?

Of its moving leave it. But the second it starts mushing remove it.
