Thanks for the reply,

Temp - 26 degrees
PH - 8.3
Alk - 10dkh
nitrate - 2.5ppm
phosphate 0ppm
Ca2 - 380 mg/L

those params have been stable for quite some time before that rock with anemone was added, with all other fish and coral having no issues and growing fine.

0.00ppm is not good for phosphate. You want a little bit.


If you want to, try adding some brand of dissolved foods (reef energy, fuel, aquaforest af energy, vitachem). I like these for anemones that aren't doing well. However, I think the anemone will be ok as long as it's attached to the rock. Once it can't attach then I would be more concerned

Does it matter to you whether your fish are captive-bred or wild caught?
