How long has the tank been running without a water change?

How are you removing nutrients? How are you replacing trace elements?

You need to be topping your tank off with ro/di water. Water changes need to be weekly to keep the parameters in check to have them pristine for a sensitive creature like an anemone.
May I ask how long this tank has been set up?

It has been set up for close to 15 months and I haven't done a water change in about 3 months because I haven't had time

So, you basically have at minimum 3 months of uncontrolled nitrates/phosphates causing issues in your tank. I would suggest making time to care for what creatures you are attempting to keep. A MAJOR water change will be necessary to begin addressing this issue along with testing your water to see what it is you are dealing with.

That is terrible for your anemone, they need clean water. And not good for any other creature in your tank either. +1 with a large water change and normal testing of your parameters.

You want to do so slowly so you don't stress things out further with a temp drop. But you will need the water level to have a constant point. I have it marked on my tank in sharpie.
