I got a torch coral back a few months ago, it only survived about three days, but in that time my GSPs would not come out and they were about four feet apart.

Here's to swimmin with bowlegged women.

-105G SPS Reef with 30G Sump/Fuge Combo
-30G LTAnemonarium with mated porcelain crabs, 10 sexy shrimp, and 2 pink skunks all tied into the other 135G in my system.

If you have corals or anemones in the tank there is bound to be some sort of chemical warfare. Anemones are notorious for releasing nematocysts in the water, especially one that is always on the move. Running carbon and aggressive skimming will usually tank care of that.

FWIW, the anemone should not wander. The tank conditions may be excellent based on test results but that is not the only thing to look at when dealing with anemones. As Sixline mentioned, water flow and light are paramount. If chemical warfare was the issue, it's fixed easily enough.
