Dying Rock Anemone

Earlier today one of my Rock Anemone began opening up and deflating right before my eyes. This evening he began to turn himself inside out.

Water checks out fine. Ammonia 0 Trite 0 Trate 10. pH 8.3, salinity 1.024. Think the problem was a Powerhead failure. Think it has been off since Sunday :/

Have the Powerhead back on now. Will he turn himself right side in or is he dead? If its not too late already, how will I know when/if he's dead.

Mine likes to turn himself all sorts of ways, esp after I've had my hand in the tank. Give him a day or 2... ,maybe target feed him a piece of shrimp.. A shift in water parms will drive em nuts.. stability is the key for any anemone
If I wanted someone to 'tag along' I'd buy a wagon.

I despise skinny felines!
