I would not feed a new anemone in the first month or so in the tank. You need to let it settle in. Sabae's are generally sand dwellers so it would likely be happier in the sand but if its had attached to the rock I would let it be. Is the color really as yellow as it appears in this picture? If so the anemone is probably dyed which is not good for its health. Lastly it sounds like you have a 2 bulb T5 setup which is probably great for a FOWLR setup but will not be enough long term to support an anemone.

not enough lighting. Remove the one actinic and install another 10k lamp. Actinics are for color rendering not really for spectrum lighting. Nems need a bunch of light for survival. Might i suggest a clownfish to host, as they will feed the Nem for you. And you need prestine water conditions, generally with trates below .5.

Give it time on the hosting. Most lfs keep tank inhabitants under normal lighting, because they are not keeping them long enough to do harm.

Not looking good. But I have seen worse, and seen them come back. Light and moderate flow. Change that Actinic out. It will surely help.

Did you get your new bulb yet? Is the anemone doing better?
