Your tank is way to young for an anemone. What kind of lighting do you have? t5s? How many bulbs?

+1 I agree that your tank is way too young for a nem. You might want to look at rehoming it.

We need a little information than that. Can you give a link to your fixture? What exactly are your parameters at? Especially Nitrate, Phosphate, Magnesium, Alkalinity, and Calcium.

Do you have the parameter measurements yet?

What type of nem and what size of tank do they have?

I ran a similar light fixture over my 20g tank and it wasn't nearly enough to grow anything that was even close to high light corals.

Regardless of the light you are really going to need to keep an eye on the other parameters of your tank.
