Honestly, give it back or take it to a LFS that will accept it. Anemones are some of the most difficult to keep marine aquarium animals that you will ever own. The most advanced marine aquarists struggle to keep them for any reasonable period of time, given that they have a 200 year natural life span when left in the ocean.
Generally accepted conditions for captive care would require Nitrate readings of zero, compact florescent lighting or better, and extremely advanced knowledge of the hobbyist.
