i was spot feeding flake/baby shrimp ground up together with a syrynge to my peppermint shrip every day or so, same went for the yellow tailed damsel. maybe 6 ml of water/food mix. i had the anemone about 3 or 4 weeks. lighting is a 24 inch 10,000k. I have essential trace elements i've added a few times, as well as a buffer and calcium which i am not adding since my alk and calc. levels are high. i'm not getting premixed water from the lfs, we have well water and a purifier which produces the equivalent of distilled water.

24" 10k? what kind of fixture is that? are you sure it's sufficient light for photosynthetic creatures?
have you checked the T.D.S. of your water?
i would not add anything you aren't testing for and are sure you are in need of. i would be doing water changes to remove the ammonia and then figure out the problem by a process of elimination.
i would check the T.D.S of the source water. what kind of purifier are you using?
i would evaluate the lighting
alkalinity and calcium levels generally aren't high together. usually, when one is high, the other is low. what brand test kits are you using?
what brand additives were you raising it with, and how were you adding them?
was this a measured dose in conjunction with test results or were you just adding a few ml's here and there until you noticed a problem?

The lighting is a 24 inch floresent bulb. It came with the tank. no, i have not checked the tds of the water. i'm not sure what kind of water purifier it is, i know it has 4 or 5 different cyllinders it goes through. i'm using a reeflife liquid test kit for the calcium, alk, nitrate and nitrite. i believe the supplements are kent and aquachem. i have not added anything other than the trace elements, and i add it according to the directions. my problems arised when i cleaned out my filters in my sump. spiked everything.
