This is my my first saltwater tank but I do plenty of research and why would it do it almost a week after I put it in the tank?

Ah ok that's good to know. Yeah it's definitely not dead then.

Nems can surprisingly put up with a lot before they show symptoms. Yours actually doesn't look that bad, keep and eye on it (its a condy right?) I am sure you know that they cannot tolerate swings in parameters (hence why they are not recommended for new tanks) so as long as you keep your water in check it will do fine.

Those Tao's are pretty bright. I have Rose bubble tips that do very well under them at 100% but Long tentacle anemones don't seem to like the intensity. I have them under one with blues at around 80% and whites all the way down as low as they go. If I turn them up any higher, they duck and run for cover.
I tried slowly ramping up the power over a period of about a month and they still did not respond well.
Just food for thought.
