Yesterday I had an anenome suicide!
 
I had a anenome split last month. The new small one has been trying to get settled. It has been moving around quite a bit. Yesterday before work I noticed that it was up around the over-flow. It some how found its way through a power head! Has anyone heard of that before? Of course there was nothing left but little pieces. I spent last night doing a 50% water change and there will be more to follow. Dan

no but the worst smell I have ever smelled was one that was dead. I have heard of them killing themself's attaching themself's to a heater.

Happens all the time. Doesn't even have to be because of a split. New anemones are especially prone. Established anemones will move from time to time and the same fate typically awaits them.
