Hello, I'm new to owning a salt water tank (and new to this community) as I just bought my 15g biocube (or maybe it's a nanocube? they look the same to me) a week ago. At my lfs, they told me they would set up my fish tank for me. A week later I came home with a cow fish, two percs, and an anemone. However, this morning I noticed my cow fish has white spots that he never had before. Also, one of my percs was fading in color. My friend went and bought me Instant Ocean: Lifeguard but I am unsure if I should use it since it's still a new tank and I'm unsure if it would harm my anemone. Also, since I did not set up the tank myself, I am unsure about the UV sterilizer. I'm sure I don't have one when I looked up what they looked like. I also had to look up what my carbon filter looked like as well. So please, any help to save my fishes would be really appreciated, thanks!

Thanks I'll definitely try that since I'm sure it might be too early to use the lifeguard on my tank.
