, this is more your problem than anything else. Your constant additions and changes can be devestating to any sensitive invertebrate, escpecially an anemone. If the water changes are 2x a week, I would cut that back to once and only 10-15%. When doing so, the "trace element" and iodine additions are not necessary. If iodine is added daily, I would not be suprised if it is actually at leathal levels. Are you testing for Iodine and if so what is the level?
is also a "cold Water" anemone so to speak and not as demanding of light intensity as most other host classified anemones would be. The 30w NO bulb is not the best idea but if that where at least a 28w PC
bulb and the anemone was midway or higher in the tank you could at least get by. I would not actually recommend you go out and but that, it's just meant as a comparison. If you seriously want to keep these types of animals you should properly upgrade to a light that will support reef animals and anemones alike.
