While we're at it, the green algae, is definitely from the light being on too long right ? Just cut it down from 12 hours a day to 8. Hoping that the green algae will disappear

More likely some excess nutrients feeding the algae

They both settled into these spots and haven't moved in 2 days. They seem to be doing ok, what do you guys think?

They seem to be a little short on zooxanthellae. I wouldn't want to cut an anemone that was somewhat bleached. It's already lacking. Maybe it's just the picture, but it looks so in your avatar as well. New tank? That rock looks brand new. I would just let the two halves settle in and heal now. No, the green algae is not from keeping the light on too long. It's from excess nutrients. Watch your feeding/nutrient export.

Thanks I appreciate it. The nem is new. The tank is about 10 months old. I've been adding new live rock on occasion. I do feed 3-4 times a day, but have since cut it down to 2x a day and will eventually take It down to 1x a day

May I ask why you feed so much? Do you have a fish that has such difficult feeding schedule? I know they exist, but unless you are doing 3x the effort to export those nutrients you'll end up with parameter issues in the future.

Actually, I wouldn't want to cut an anemone at all. My goal in this hobby is to make my inhabitants as comfortable as possible and allow them to flourish. I think putting an anemone through a large amount of stress is counter productive, but to each their own. Easy adding the new rock. Make sure it doesn't have a lot of die off or you may get an ammonia spike.

Just to update, I fed both of them a piece of krill yesterday and they both ate. So far so good.

Question : if I buy live zooxanthellae, will the UV kill them ?

Uv will kill anything that passes through it. But that said, you can't buy the zoo that grows in the flesh of corals and anemone that makes them photosynthetic. Even if you could, it wouldn't swim around until it found a host.
