Hey everyone, im Jay ive had a 45g saltwater up and running for about 6 months now. I'll get directly to the point, i seem unable to just keep something alive, right now im in a sort of good spot, nothing has died in about a month.
I have a very basic setup no bells or whistles, i have no clue what to dose or even where to start. If someone could "mentor" me that would be great.

5 gallon ain't bad but do it weekly. I got a 24 gallon and I do 10% every Sunday. I purchased nutri seawater $13 4.4 gallon and rodi water $5 4.4 gallon at my lfs. Attached photo is my water pars reading taken last Sunday. Got any corals and inverts?

if you don't have any macro algae like chaeto I would add some. Just partition the tank so that 3" from the glass you add an 1/4" plastic grid (eggcrate). put chaeto between the glass and eggcrate and it's best to add some side lighting.

Once you get the chaeto thriving I think you'll find things are much better.

Anemone need proper lighting, temperature, pH and salinity. Did you test your water pars before acclimating and transferring over? It’s normal for anemone to deflate from time to time. Mine split from stressed of insufficient lighting. And I’m have troubles now.
