    In addition to the above, what other water parameters? Being as specific and detailed as possible will help out substantially.

    Can you get any pics of it?

    FWIW, lighting sounds insufficient, especially with one white lamp and one actinic. Has the anemone actually attached to a location or is it just sitting in a spot?

    I don't see any anemones in the picture you provided. I see a bubble coral, a hammer coral and a colt coral.
