Also what does perfect params mean? And what test kit are you using?

Api kits are no where near accurate enough for reefs, little better than guessing IMHO. Your params are???

PH: 8.2
Ammonia: .25 (Makes sense because of the additions from yesterday)
Nitrite: 0 ppm
Nitrate: 10 ppm

A few more tank specs:

30 lbs live rock
80 lbs live sand
Water flow: ~2550 GPH
Hydor Slimskim 250.65 Protein Skimmer
Sump w/ Bioballs (soon to be a refugium with Chaeto Macroalgae)
Fluval 306 Canister Filter (took out carbon, added Purigen)

Water quality is out of the question IMO, my tank's water is exceptional. I didn't make this post to find out how the anemone may have been injured/killed. I simply wanted to find out if it was alive or not.

IMO 10 nitrates isn't exceptional. Also, it shows ignorance to say that you don't need to know why your anemone was killed.

Ammonia above 0 is cause for concern too. Your nem died, so something is clearly cause for concern.

Anemone's need mature system of around one year. They also need very strong lights for photosynthesis.

I found I was dripping for so long that the temperature would drop my drip container shocking the creature when I moved it to my DT.

Red Sea makes good test kits. Good luck!

No, you see, the ammonia spike was caused by the Anemone dying.

And don't you ever call me ignorant again because I give a **** and I actually try and struggle through things. I know why the anemone died so please, stop making a fool of yourself.

Oh got it. Sorry I misread. Thought those were the results before the nem died. I'm with ezy that dripping too long can cause temp swings but I doubt that caused the death.
