They didn't sell you dying fish (I assume you mean the anemone) I would say improper acclimation killed it. In any case they shouldn't have sold you livestock that your tank is not ready for...

I am in agreement with bectan. The nem died because of the method it was added into the tank rather than the fish store selling you dying livestock.

You can most likley never trust the lfs, thats why we have forums no? + 1 inproper acclimation was the killer in this case and also the little research done by the OP. (which seems to be none)

We all make mistakes like this whether it be big $$$ or just a couple dollars. The good thing that comes from this is that you learn a lesson, to acclimate properly and to always do your research.

I'm not sure it was acclimation, because I generally float anemones and then add them, with no ill effects. I've been doing this for years.
I think it is the tank itself.
Please explain the setup- gallons, flow, lighting, parameters...
