Anemone help

I have had a purple tip anemone in my tank for 4 days now and he still hasn't put his foot down anywhere. Currently he is upside down(not dead). What should I do? Thank you

Carefully turn it back over. Is the foot sticky?

His foot is, like sucked up into him. He looks healthy and all it just concerted me that he hasn't put his foot down yet. Is this normal, I payed 25 bucks for him

Definitely don't leave him upside down. I grab mine and hold the foot to the rock.

I tried to hold him to a rock and he wouldn't do it. I also have a hatian pink tip anemone that I held to the rock and he grabbed right on.

Some don't like to be on rock like mine. It didn't settle down for about 4 weeks it was just floating around in my tank the finally just plopped down on the bottom of my tank... Just keep him right side up and let him do his thing... Do you have clown fish???
