Anemones don't use calcium but I add it for my other corals. I was just telling you what I added.

Problem is your lighting you want to double what you have at least. 2 t5's is not enough at all for these, there main source of food is through photosynthesis anything they gather from the water column is just a bonus, and judging from the colour of the rocks in the tank it looks like your setup is pretty new.

Nems split because they fear they will not last where they are so they make a clone of themselves to carry on with life. Tanks that are less than 6 months old should never have a nem in them as the tank is constantly changing even if we dont notice it on tests.

I would say double you light to 4 HOT5's asap if you want to keep nems.

It's 4 years old, the rocks died because they took 2 weeks to ship. Everything is fine now. Everything is at the top of the tank except my nem likes to be at the bottom

And I am getting more lights. I already knew about them. All of the LFS told me how I can keep them until I get lights. And the nem split probably due to stress from moving tanks

the rocks are 4 years old or the tank is?

If the rocks "died" from shipping then they are not 4 years old, they are only a few weeks...

I wouldnt take anything the LFS says about fish or nem care very serious as I had a LFS want to sell me Lionfish because it was "safe" for my reef , they are there to make a sale and get your cash then when something happens you go back and buy more.

Not all of them. Only a few but I got purple cordline on them so it's all good. And the person at one of them has studied marine biology
