Do you have sponges on your power heads? If not, your anemone probably got Ginsued by one of them and sadly fouled your tank. A large WC may be the only thing to save your livestock.

My mother had that happen. Thats why you will never see a power head without a sponge on it

I would mix up some salt, test your levels and then do a 50% water change. When you go to siphon the water, try and get as many of those chunks as possible.
