That's it exactly. Crap. It's not dying, just taking a poo. Should inflate back once it's done. Give it an hour or so.

This is day 3 I've removed them from their rocks put then in a basket hung on the tank so they can't get max light available

Removing them from their rock is a horrible idea... You can really injure its foot and stress it out. If nems are unhappy they will move on their own to somewhere they are more happy.

And what carried said is right, sounds like it was just expelling waste. My BTA goes from about 12 inches to maybe 2 inches.
