You need to give it some time. What are your current parameters and how about flow and placement? Lighting?

you need a lot more light than that to keep an anemone. You also need to get some test kits the stick test are the most inaccurate tests. Invest in some Red Sea Pro or Slifert. I would suggest buying some new light anemone I don't think will survive under that light.
