Well, the nitrates at 100 would be my first guess without knowing anything else about your system. Anemone need perfect water conditions, so nitrate being 0. What kind of lighting do you have?

Agreed that nitrates are causing the problem but also those Marineland lights unfortunately are no way near strong enough to support your nem

Yeah, those marine land lighting units look nice but they just don't put out the power necessary to support an anemone. I would suggest either returning the light for one more potent, either a t5ho unit with 4 or more bulbs (personally wouldn't try without 6 depending on tank size), mh unit, or an led fixture that is roughly 3 watts. If your lfs doesn't carry anything or is out of budget look up the taotronics led fixtures, up on amazon and eBay. They will support the anemone.

If this is not an option, of suggest returning the anemone.

Those Double Brights won't even support mushrooms. Only good for Freshwater or FOWLR tanks

And their Reef Lights aren't any better. OK, they're better, but still not good enough for a reef tank
