It may be ok directly under it but the corners of that tank probably don't get much light. Could you post a full tank shot?

Light or lack of is not the reason this anemone isn't happy. It's too early to see the effects of lack of light. What test kit are you using to get your 550ppm calcium result? What are you dosing or adding to the tank?
If your calcium is truly 550ppm, I bet your alk (much more important) is very low, and this very well could be your problem.

These are the two kits I have my calcium is off the charts they have but I linearly interpreted it from the chart they provided. I figured more calcium was ok, as my lfs said the levels would drop in there own. I do not dose anything. Time in again I use kent marine tech part a and part b for ph changes. I typically try to raise ph. I can give exact reads when I get home from work. I usually do a 10% water change with Kent's reef salt once a week and use RO/DI water.

That calcium kit is off. API makes a crappy calcium kit. Do another water change and don't add any buffers. Increase surface agitation to increase PH.

Calcium isn't the issue here. I'd turn off the power head and see if the anemone will plant his foot and go from there.
