We need details. Describe your setup and post water tests. We need test results for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, alkalinity, and calcium at minimum.

It is not unusual in saltwater for fish to disappear. Small fish are readily eaten by the crabs, snails, and other small critters in your sand bed and rock.

Yes, the anemone could easily be the problem. You should not be keeping sensitive marine animals in your setup.
