I have a very sick/dead anemone

Hi i have had my anemone for 2 days and it seems to have a bold patch now and slimy type stuff coming out of it what dose this mean. the day i put it in it looked to be in good health and the 2nd day it got bigger after its move from the shop to my tank and it had moved along the tank a bit. now those it dose not look very well i have put it in a bag of water and it is in the top of the tank so it is still at the temp it should be i just dont want it killing the rest of my tank off can any one help at all should i leave it in the bag or was that not a good move i dont want it to die if it isnt all ready.

when you see it spitting stuff out...that is it emptying its stomach...you have to remember its mouth is also its butt...once it has calmed down try feeding it mysis shrimp

The heater isnt the best spot for it . You need a meaty feed. mysis or a small piece of raw prawn feed to its tentacles and it should take it to its mouth/rear its self.

it has moved its self away from the heater now iam still unsure on how or what its doing. i am pretty new to this but i knew that i wanted to keep coral's when i was setting up my tank so i ask the lfs for a light that would be ok for corals. the bulb i have is a t8 15w marine glo bulb and from what i have been reading on the forums tonight that is no way f***ing good enough so the lfs is gonna have a face full of me tomoro for selling my a light dosent have a chance of keeping things alive
