Your problem is your over stocked and your filtration can't keep up with your bio load. With nitrates up in the 70 range none of those corals are going to last very long, and the fish will become stressed as well, which will lead to disease/parasites and their deaths most likely also.

I'd say that's a good place to start-Lowering the bio load. Anthias don't belong in a tank that size. I don't see the rest of the fish, but that's a lot for a small tank.

Is this dying???

Store I bought them in said they would be ok, and they also said same for anthia!! They seem to do better when it's about 20 so using little glass like pellets that absorb the nitrate that should help it along way with water changes! And I moved the kenya tree into a higher position in the tank and it's doing great now!!
Other fish are very small at least 4 about an inch or less!!

Yes, but the problem is, stores don't usually have your best interests in mind. In many cases they are more concerned with selling livestock than the well being of said livestock. It's clearly the case here.
That said, nitrate reducing media is just masking the problem. I would suggest correcting the root of the problem instead.
