Even the foods....they contribute to fouling the water. Just feed the fish. That will be enough for the entire tank. If you need to add an ammonia binder on a regular basis, your bacteria colony is not able to process what you are putting in the tank.

Another note to add, if I may. Anemone tense to do well in a mature tank. Ones that has been up and running at the very least 6 months. Personally, I like it at least 8months to a year.

All good advice given here esp doug's , it's human nature to try to do too much at first by adding chemicals etc, one of the best pieces of advice I personally could add is to let your tank age for awhile b4 adding too much coral no matter what your tests say ,... Tanks need to age and become stable ,.. 8-10-12 months would be a normal range, let the tank do its work ,there's a lot going on behind the scenes ,Yes it's a very hard thing to adhere to and everyone thinks that their tank is the exception BUT your overall success rate will climb drastically by letting things settle in for awhile. Slow and easy .
