don't add the calcium. you will effect the alk. just do regular water changes(weekly) and get some stronger lighting.
acclimate the tank to the stronger lighting. not with shorter photo periods, but with a slow increase in intensity. many use a series of window screens, removing one each week until (3) they are gone.

It seems that you do not yet have your own test kits. They are a necessity. Get some quality liquid test kits a/o Salifert/LaMotte kits and a refractometer for SG.

My basic SW rules.
Rule # 1. Nothing Good ever happens Fast in a salt water aquarium
Rule # 2. Don't add anything (supplements/chemicals/minerals)you don't test for first.
Rule # 3. PWC (Partial Water Changes) are your friend, and cure many ills.
Rule # 4. QT EVERYTHING before adding it to your tank (mandarins excepted, corals should be dipped)
Rule # 5. Use only RO or RODI water (either buy it or make it)
Rule # 6. All animal species live longer on a 30% reduced caloric intake. Only feed every other day at most (fish species dependant)
Rule # 7. Hyposalinity is the best, safest, and most effective treatment for marine Ich (IMHO)
Rule # 8. A Refractometer is a MUST HAVE, not a luxury.
Rule # 9. Anemones will never live anywhere near their normal (aprox 30 years) lifespan in a home aquarium. Leave them in the ocean.
