Yes an anemone in a 6 week tank is normally a bad thing for most people. They need pristine water conditions and a stable established tank. What type of lighting system do you have as they also require pretty powerful lights to flourish.

I see a couple of problems here, an elegance coral and something else not open and an anemone sitting in a cave with no direct light? Do you know what your parameters are? And as asked above what kind of lighting are you using?

Is there any other way of reducing phosphate and ammonia levels other than water change?

For small tanks (<20 gal) Can use filtration media to physics absorb/attracts. Chem-lite has such products.

I also hear that break limestone into very very small and fine pieces can achieve the same effect just less efficient.

Looks like most of your candycane coral over on the side is dead, I see like 1 polyp and the rest is skeleton. your elegance doesn't look happy either, it's suposed to be out and swaying not sucked into the skeleton like that. Your anemone shouldn't be where it is getting no light, it will die in there. The fact that you're asking about amonia leads me to believe you have some? If thats the case start changing water because most living creatures don't handle amonia very well...
