You have a 4 bulb t5?? If so that's not enough light for a nem. And your tank is how old? Nems in general should only be added to a tank at least a year old or one with pristine water conditions that don't fluctuate. You might want to find him a new home.

Age of your tank plays a huge part in keeping anemones...And they don't like large temp swings...How old is your tank?

The only thing you can so is try and keep those parameters stable. Test regularly if you can, at least every couple of days. You don't want any fluctuations in particular temp and salinity - can you check those often? I used to keep a nem under 4 54w t5 and it wasn't enough, it also added a couple of degrees to my temp and that was on a 55g so I switched to LEDs...
