Sebae anemones are one of the hardest to keep alive.
What kind of lighting do you have?
How long has your tank been running?

What's a "36pasx"? What kind of bulbs does it take and how many?

I think an obvious problem is that you have nitrates at 20 ppm. I think that is no condition for a tank with an anemone in it to be in.

Anemone's are very sensitive to variations in you're tank water. With one of those guys in the tank you really have to be on you're game with parameters and water temp. normally if my anemones act out of sorts it's an indication someth'n is wrong with my water. 9 times outta ten i have a spike in something. They are awsome to have in the tank but they are tough to keep if you're tank hasn't been operational for at least a year.
