What's your light setup?

Move the carpet nem to the side of your tank and get some plexiglass to create a barrier for the fish. Seriously, protect the fish from that monster!

I still don't get the LFS. they should take it back even if for no credit.

I had MH, but they blew into smoke. Now I'm back to my 2 t-5 HO lighting 10,000k and 3 HO t-8 lighting till I can get this 8 bulb t-5 HO fixture. But the nems don't like the bright light anyway though. They stay in the shade

And I thought I was the only one that did that. Most LFS I go to have the same books I have in my car so I don't have to take them I just ask to see their store copy.

Nope... anemones *need* good lighting. They stay in the shade when they are stressed or dieing. Anemones are not the most intelligent animals out there... you'd think it would move into the light when it needs more light, but they actually do just the opposite. If you supply brighter lighting (6x T5HO would be good) they will move into the light.

Honestly... the LFS won't even take it back for NO credit if you show up with it in a bag and plop it on their counter? And leave?

Yup. I don't think a LFS would complain if they get the opportunity to sell something twice, and only pay for it once.

Is there a local club or forum that you could use for someone that is willing to take it?
