if you dont it will die and crash your tank probably. i would return it and save up. let the tank mature, nems shouldnt be added until a tank is stable and at least 1 year old

I've heard 3 months, 6 months, 1 year. I don't know what to believe anymore.

the only thing i have ever heard and read is one year. Believe one year. The anemone is a very sensitive animal, return it, save up, get better lighting, let your tank mature.

You should be extremely careful when moving an anemone. If you damage the foot it could kill it. The gaping mouth would indicate that it's definitely not happy. This with the constant moving around. When an anemone moves it's to find a more suitable place. Something about your tank is not ideal. The lighting isn't the problem however....at least not at the moment. The reason i say this is that the anemone has strong color. If it was poor lighting it would most likely make it's way to the top of the rock and open as much as possible to increase surface area exposed to light, not wither and expel it's gut.
What test kits are you using to arrive at these numbers?

So, for all you know they could be strips, or API kits? I would invest in my own quality test kits if I wanted to be sure.

It isn't strips, I've watched them text my water. Combination of liquids and devices to mix and such.

1) picture of my tank fully lite.
2) where the Nem sits
3) the Nem this morning looking better (I can't explain it, maybe just getting rid of waste?)
