I need help

This is my first time with a salt water tank.....I have waited 4 months to put in a bubble anemone and the more Iíve looked into it the more Iím seeing I should have waited. My tank keeps spiking in Nitrates and Calcium......I donít want it do die and I was told to keep doing a 25-50 percent water change but is there anything else that could help me balance out my tank and stop the algae growth and keep this anemone alive????

For starters, that is not a bubble tip. That would be a rock flower. A very bleached one. Anemone require intense lighting to keep alive, which many in the hobby donít have.

When it comes to the nitrate levels, youíll need to continue the large water changes. But calcium levels canít spike. What brand test kits are you doing? Are you using ro/di water? How often are you doing these water changes?
