Pink Rose anemone

Got a new pink rose anemone as well as a second tomato clown for my tank. I noticed that shortly after about say an hour the tomato was playing in the anemone while the anemone was eating some krill, and the tomato seemed to flicker as if he was stung. I know they don't sting them but is it possible that while after being introduced he could have lost some protective coating on his body and then gotten stung? He died the next morning after this. He was fluttering around on the bottom and breathing hard after this. Any ideas?

I think that the way clowns and other fish are able to shelter themselves in anemones is that they transfer some of the anemone's slime onto their own bodies and then the anemone doesn't recognize them as food or a threat. I think that they can still get stung if they don't have the anemone's slime on them. Somebody please chime in if I am wrong!
