Did my anemone kill my fish?

Is it possible for a green-tip bubble anemone to release a lethal toxin that would kill a blenny and a wrasse? If so, how long will the toxin remain in the water. What percent water change should I perform? I have a 28 gallon nano cube. How long should I wait before I introduce new fish?

If it died, yes. We call it "nuking" a tank. Check your ammonia levels and do a 30-50% pwc. Check your parameters and let your tank settle. I'd say a week or two.

The anenome did not realease a toxin in the tank. They kill fish by touching them with their long tentacles.

All levels are good. Just got back from my LFS and they checked all levels as well. All of my inverts are alive and well. I have a peppermint shrimp, two hermits and several snails that are all good. The anemone does not appear to be dead. He is still inflated.

K, then I'm going to have to agree with melosu.
