Could be just about anything. Most anemones do not fair well through collection/shipping with most of the damage being done before you get them.

The BTA is most likely adjusting to the light instensity. Give it time and allow it to find it own place. Don't do anything to interfere unless it's in danger of a powerhead or similar.

The light you have is sufficient for both these species.

Ive always thought it was normal for the anenome to curl up and deflate, If you really think harm has been done pick it out (If its stuck, theres chance its still good) And then smell it, if it smells kinda like old seafood, then its done with. If it has no smell, it will usually come back withn a day or so. My rose anenome and rittier anenome both do it, and come back lookign healthy the next day

I agree with Steve, you should probably just take it out. While anemones do often times deflate and look bad when they are expelling waste, this one looks beyond hope. IMO, it is not worth jeopardizing the rest of the tank. Dying and dead anemones can release toxins into the water and really cause problems. I would remove it, start running some fresh GAC and be ready to do a water change if needed.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
