Correction 20% not 10. Fat fingers and an iphone don't mix.

Hopefully he'll survive, before when he tore his foot, I heard that 99% of the time he'll not survive but now it completely healed, remains to be seen, all life on earth are ever so dynamic. Thanks, I'll update if he'll survive or not.
Jimmye4fish, goodluck on your anemone..

Here is a decent breakdown...
Grow Coralline Algae & Corals - Values To Maintain A Healthy Saltwater Aquarium - Get Tanked Aquariums, bulk reef supply

The big ones are Calcium, Alk, Mag, and of course ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. Regular water changes should keep all of these values within acceptable levels.

The last few days its been opened up but not as large as it once was. Today when I get home it looks like this. It seemed to be doing better after the water change on Saturday until today. My new lights won't be here until prob next week. Should I cut my losses or just wait it out? I don't want to mess up the tank and kill our fish.

You can do a 10% water change every day! It sure won't hurt as long as the changed water is the right temp and stats

When I woke up this morning all the lights were off and the nem was opened a little (used my cell phone light) and when I got home it was completely closed up. So I dimmed the lights to about 1/2 power and it looks better now than it has in a few weeks. Could this home made LED light be to strong? Could it be because there is 6 rows of white vs one blue? (Whites are the only ones that dim). It doesn't look like it did the first week but within 3 hours of dimming the whites it looks 100 times better than it has. Just curious.

Plus they are so dang expensive. Seems like everyone has different opinions and I don't want to spend the money to find out what I bought isn't right.
Is it possible to get some pics of your home made led lights to see what you have. Lighting might not be a issue for you.
