things look good man..and your fish stocking choice sounds nice too.a rainbow of colors..remember that the decorator crab may decide to utilize your coral sometimes..

sometimes clowns will host corals too, like torches, frogspawns, flower pots. so you can try those if you think the anemone will move around

hmmm

various factors come into play when it comes too blooms..first would be excess of nutrients so check your perameters including phosphates and nitrates..down the photoperiod a little..add clean up crew acordingly carefull not to overstock..it sould be a few days or a couple weeks..hard to tell...especialy when in the dark about the eviroment..
