More than likely, way to new for the nem. Worried it's going to croak and cause more issues for you

If you're having blooms, something's not right

Test for phosphated with there special test kit, the only thing i could think of is the frozen mysis shrimp i feed them every 3-4 days, the lfs said its really good and low in phosphates but then yet again idk?!?

Phosphates often don't show in tests, it's in the water, algae is feeding on it, so the test results are skewed

If there is algae .
I know there has to be high
1) nitrates
2) phosphates
Algae needs these high nutrients to grow .
Is it diatoms or cyano bacteria ?
Cyano is normally red .
But can be any colour ,
It's a slime algae .
Diatoms are normally a rusty colour .
For the nem , you have one of the easiest and hardiest to keep so I'm not worried .
A rule of thumb for reef keeping though ,
A nem should only be kept in mature systems ( 1 year plus )
You have a better chance of success keeping it alive , and thriving . Do you have any pictures ? Of the algae and anemone ?
