Invest in a RO/DI unit. Bulkreefsupply sells them. They are pretty cheap and will save you money in the long run. The problem with buying at LFS is you have no idea what TDS they are running and you have no idea if and when they change out the filters

You need to do more than get new lighting. All that it would do with insufficient lighting would be to lose color slowly, until it fades away. Not die abruptly.

You have to figure out what killed the anemone. I can't do that for you. Some parameter is off. Start at the beginning, and If all of your test kits give you acceptable levels, get better quality test kits.

I would not purchase anything else until you figure out what parameters are out of line....

Sorry it died. Since it recently died I would suggest you do a water change, to prevent parameters, from getting even further out of whack. Test your tank daily for the next week. You also might want to test your LFS water before you even add it to your tank, to make sure it's where it needs to be.

I would also suggest as others have, to get an RO/DI water system, and start making your own water, it's cheaper in the long run and, you know EXACTLY what is going into your tank. Keep us posted as to what your results are so some of us can better help you along to get your tank parameters back in line.

Ammonia should be 0 and PO4 should be around .05 or lower.

Wouldn't the amm go up if it was dead? BC before put it in there it was 0... And how do u get the po4 down? Would the specific gravity have something to do w it too?
