    I don't think anything is wrong with Mr Anemone. BTA's regularly deflate to expell waste and change out their water. If he's like that for more than a day then you may have troubles.

    Now he's completely deflated, fell on his side, and looks like a pile of junk. Am i safe to assume he's a goner? I don't want him to release toxins into my tank and kill everything.

    What kind of lighting do you have?
    Also, water test readings would further help us diagnose accurately.

    I still wouldn't freak as long as he is still attached to the rock.

    I once tried to scrape my "dead" anemone off a rock with a scraper. It wouldn't let go so I decided to let it die in peace. Turns out I still have that same anemone.

    When you say "stock slighting" what kind of lighting is it? Is it PC or T5? From your picture, it looks a little bleached, is that how it really looks or is that just the coloring of the picture?
