I didn't change the lights? I don't understand.
I meant the differenc in lighting from the LFS to your tank and the change in water paremters from the LFS to your tank.

What kind of lighting do you have on the tank? Unless your quarantine tank has appropriate lighting for photosynthetic inverts...I would acclimate the anemone back to the main tank.

You should slowly raise the level to 1.025 - 1.026.

I have 2 PC bulbs, 55 watts each, one acintic blue and one white.

Regarding the salinity: Should I rely on evaporation to raise it? By this I mean to replace evaporated water with salt mix at the same salinity of the tank on replacement day. It may take a month to change it all the way. What do you suggest?

Thank you all for your help and advice. I was about to give up when I thought I had downward spiralled my entire system. I just checked in on it at lunch and everything looks happy. :P

Well heck no, don't go and do that. I've been keeping reef tanks for a long time - let's see, going on 14 years now. I don't have all the answers and never will. Anybody that tells you they do is the last person I'd listen to. Anyway, most of the answers that I do have come from learning from my past mistakes. We *all* go through times that our systems frustrate us so much, we're ready to pack it in. I've got this horrid nuisance patch of caulerpa growing smack in the middle of one of my favorite corals, and it's bleaching it to death. Can't figure out how to get rid of it for the life of me. Point is, stick with it, and succeed or fail (we all fail at times), you'll come out of it with knowledge, and you'll do better next round.

That is exactly what I would suggest. If you feel it is going too slowly, When you do water changes, use water with a slightly higher salinity level for the replacement water.

HTH,

She's on the road to recovery!

My rose is firming up. She even ate last night. I will leave her in quarantine for the rest of the week then return her to the main tank. The pH and alkalinity are back to 8.2 and 3.5! :P

Thank you so much for your help!
