Anemone is sick i think?

My anemone split not to long ago and everything was fine. Now it looks shrunken up. No matter what I would do the clownfish hosting it would never let it eat. It would take the food from it then spit it out at the other side of the tank. I keep the temp at 78 but for some reason the temp was at 74 when I woke up this morning. Ph 8.4 nitrate 0 nitrite under 20 phosphate 0. I have 2 t-5 HO lights that are 10,000 k. And one atinic. Here is a befor and after picture

Did you get the niTRIte and NiTRAte backwords? You should not have any nitrite reading, let alone ~20ppm.

Do you do regular water changes b/c my anemone wasn't looking so good and one water change and he went back to looking normal in a few days.

Well my anemone was looking pretty bad and I did a 25% and it recovered in a few days. I also add calcium/alkalinity solution when needed.
