A new tank goes through many changes in the first few months of being set up and those changes are what can affect the anemone. After about 6-9 months the tank has stabilized enough to keep them. These changes arent even the basic water parameters but underlying to them so there is no way to really rush things.

If you can I would return the nem and go from there. And yes, it will move whenever and wherever it wants, thats what they do until they find their happy spot.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I agree with the above mentioned about the anemone, my tank is about 9 months old now and just got a gbta and am still nervous about it. Also i would be worried about that urchin starving i had 1 of those in my tank around the 5 month mark and he last about 3 months before he ran out of food.

It's amazing how much the urchins eat .
If there isn't enough Algae it will eat coralline but that doesn't last long .
I've had my ritteri since the tank was 3 months old .
Since then it's bleached and turned back to its normal colour
