We have had it for 2 months now and our water is testing fine. Yes it's under a rock, after turning on the light it looks fin after an hour.

What are your water parameters? What lights are you running over your tank? How long has the tank been set up?

I'm not sure about the lights, and what do you mean about water parameters? My water tested fine and the tank has been setup for 3 years, but 2 months ago we moved the tank, at first some fish we're stressed but they all are doing fine it's just the anemone who is having problems

The lights are going to be important. Are they t5ho, LED, metal halide? They might not be enough to support the nem.

The parameters refers to the ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, salinity, calcium, phosphate, magnesium, and alkalinity. They all need to be at good levels to keep a nem healthy and we really need to know the values of them before additional help can be provided.
