I did set up one tank dominated by various Anemone but so far not getting good result yet. Some of them die in short period.
Any suggestion or tip to help me would be much appreciated.

FYI: Tank specification as follows:
tank capacity - 200 gallons
wavemaker - Tunze 6100x2
skimmer - Schuran 150
Lighting - 400wx1
refugium sump with miracle mud
plenty of live rocks
Salt - Reef Crystal

you will get better results by only keeping one type of nem in your tank,your tank should be at least 6 months old as well

i have to agree you can keep multiples only if they are the same type or maybe 1 or 2 if they are on opposite ends and dont ever move plus i recomend tank be set up at least 1 year prior to a new for best results they are very sensative to everything that happens and strees out easily and once they do that they usually die

Do you only have 400w in total lighting? They might not be getting enough light in certain areas. How many nems total and how many different types do you have?

Yes, I only have one 400w but my tank is only 36" wide and 30" deep.
I have total of ten nems and 3 different type of them.
