Can you tell us more about the system? How large is it, what are the current parameters, how long as it been up and running, what lighting is over the tank?
Anemone are very sensitive creatures and require pristine water parameters and intense lighting to survive. They can be known to hide when introduced into a new system if they find things stressful and have been known to wander around until they find a spot that they find appropriate to meet their needs.

Currently you have two issues. The first is that the tank size being too small for fish like a tang. That trigger wonít be well suited long term in there either. Iíd suggest looking at liveaquaria.com for very good suggested tank sizes.
Secondly, donít dose anything into your system that you arenít testing for. It is very easy for these elements to build up and cause problems. Supplements for things like calcium are only used by corals and a reef system needs to be pretty heavily stocked before weekly water changes canít keep up with their draw from the water column. Itís just an expensive way for stores and companies to make money and can very easily crash an entire system.

Okay thank you I wasn't planning on keeping the trigger unless he stays docile and I am planning on upgrading size of my tank in the summer

One more question the sea anemone The Rock behind the tank and it's not dead but it has shrunk in size significantly since I put it in there should I remove it I don't want it to contaminate my tank or should I give time to Blossom

Just wait. Time and patience is key. Keeping water pristine and stable will be key as an anemone adjusts to a new tank.
