Remove it and put it in quarantine maybe do an iodine treatment for it. For the tank I'd start water changes and testing to make sure everything stays.within normal ranges

The anemone is completely gone. He was completely shredded. Ive saved some before from this but my tank never turned milky white. I have done a small water change and everything is testing normal. Just dont want my fish tank to be poisoned.

Need to do multiple big PWCs to get the anemone bits out.

There is a reason why these anemones are moving around so much. They do not like something about your tank. Lighting, flow, parameters...something is not ideal.
