Run the standard set of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate tests. There is always a potental when an anenome gets schreeded by a PH that the stinging cells get spread by the water current and land on corals and fish. Unless the anenome was really powerful as a stinger or alot of these cells land on a coral or fish they should be ok but be on the watchout for spots of tissueregression on any corals you might have.

wow....my reading went skyhigh
Ammonia 0.25
Nitrite 2.0
Nitrate 40
pH 8.0

Should I do about a 20% water change or just wait.???

I just did a 50% water change the other day, I was going to start running chemi-pure today

Do a water change, I do one whenever Ammonia or Nitrite goes out of the norm.
