It has high calcium, but very low alkalinity. You will need to dose alkalinity. I use it also. Though I see it in the high 400s, and 7dkh. If you don't do water changes the corals will use up that alkalinity in a very short time. If you do, do water changes, it will only ever go as high as around 7, and dip below that as it's used up. What does your tank look like now? How much coral is in it, and what's the total water volume?

Those corals aren't going to pull much yet, but I would start a regular water change regimen to ensure They are getting enough of what they need. How long have you had that anemone?

I'm asking because if you had a water quality issue, you would probably see it with the anemone. Splitting is a sign of stress, so take that into consideration. It's generally not a good sign. That it's retained color and is getting larger is a good sign though. Maybe the initial change from the store to your tank created the stress.

Might be, i got him from a guy on craigslist since it split in his tank. And i mean if i had anything wrong he would go right? If you water is good enough for a rbta its good enough for basic sps right? Or no

I don't know the answer to that. Some sps are extremely sensitive to excess nitrate and/or phosphate....the anemone may not be phased. Good test kits are the best way to tip the odds in your favor.
