Purchased established 29 gal tank, questions

I have never had a SW tank before. I do have 100 G FW. So I found a 29 G established tank FOWLR. In the tank are
two clowns 3-4"
One LRG green brittle star
One BTA looks green
Filter Whisperx45 240gph
light power glow 20 W

The tank was transported home and set up 2 wks ago.
Water parameters
Salinity 1.021-1.023
Ph 8.4
Amonia 0
Nitrites 0
Nitrates 0
Feeding brittle star and BTA silverside, star every other day, hes big and I want to keep him happy since I learned OL worst star you can have, AKA star of death (to fishes) The BTA I have Fed twice in the 2 wks. it is very small, maybe 3" across.
Everything seemed fine and then last night BTA looked listless so I thought maybe passing waste. Then it picked up and looked great. I checked on it an hour later and it had moved under some LR in kinda a cave. Now this worries me because what little I do know is they need a faie amount of light. It looks ok because I can see the edge of it. I'm just worried there could be a problem.... any advice welcome. I will try to send pic
