NO3&PO4 are there the algae is consuming it. 3 months is a little young for an anemone as sensitive as they are. The do better in a well established balanced tank. As long as you keep it balanced and have enough light. I would try to lower the nutrients and get rid of the cyano. Might cut back on feeding and maybe invest in a gfo reactor to drop phosphates. Be sure to use RO/DI water.

Thats good to hear! Being that you are experienced i am sure the nem will do fine! I assumed since the tank was new you were new to saltwater! If you don't mind me asking what dimensions is your 120? I am thinking about upgrading to a 120. How do you like it are they any cons about it?

I think the demensions were 6ft by 18in deep and 24in high. It was nice i got it from my aunt and she had it ten years and then i had it for 1 year. Had to go to this 40gal breeder and had them drill the 2in hole in the middle because i plan on setting it up in the middle of a room. The 120 had an overflow and had to have it off the wall 4in didnt really like that. I switched lights to 4 t5hos it had timer on it also went with the odyessea ik there super cheap but only thing i would say is u have to solder bigger capacitors on it and it will work they put way to small of ones on it. I got a diff odyessea 36in without the timer and it has been great i switched light bulbs to ati's and plan on doing it with this one 2 aqua blue specials and 2 blue plus. The tank was great still have it i just didnt want to be doing 30 gal water change every 2 weeks till i get my house done then i will set it up again. Also i love that i had a bigger selection of fish.
