What are the dimensions of the tank?
Do you know what bulbs you are using and how old they are?
Couple of possibilities:
You may need new bulbs as they do need to be changed out every so often.
You may need another of the same fixture.
Or maybe just one or two of the 120w Chinese fixtures found on eBay depending on tank dimensions.

What salt mix are you using. Regular water changes should be sufficient with the right salt to keep your levels up with the corals you have. But yes you should increase cal up to at least 400

But is it a 29 cube roughly 20x20x19 or rectangle 30x12x18?

I would hold off on the bta for another 5-6 months at least. They need an established stable tank. IME condylactis are more forgiving than bta. And you should get your lighting squared away first as well. If you want the clown to host something in the meantime look into maybe frogspawn or other similar corals.
