What most likely happened was when your anemone died it nuked your tank. When nems die, they can release a TON of toxins into your tank. If they are not removed they can continue to cause issues well into the future. I would run some carbon to help get it out along with doing a couple 50% pwc to really clean it out well.

Also, what type of lighting are you using? Nem's need some great lighting to survive.

"If your wife ever asks how much something was for your tank, just tell her you got it on sale and you had to have it! She'll understand"

Everybody is ok right now, Toadstool is shedding profusely.
I still haven't seen his polyps in three weeks. The Chili coral grows
at night and opens, the colt coral is ok as is the ricordea. I am
running carbon, always do. I do 10% water changes once a week,
or more so. I plan to do a big change this weekend of the water and
filter and all and head out for vacation and leave mom to them.
I got the nem out probably before he died (pink haitian) The curly
Qs are doing fine, should I not have them? I sure haven't killed them
yet. But let me buy an expensive one.....

Here's a good article: Curlique Anemone, Curly-Cue Anemone, Bartholomea annulata, Sea Anemone Facts and Sea Anemone Pictures of the Ringed Anemone

Happy Reefing,
