Anemone Hiding

My anemone went on the back side of the lr and I cant get to him. He hasnt eaten in 3 days and I'm worried about him. Do i need to remove rocks and get him out to be fed or when he gets hungry come out and eat. I can barely see him but still this is my first one.

What type is it? Anemones are very good at finding places they like on their own. I would just leave it. Moving an anemone can cause it more stress. I would not worry about the feedings either. It will get what it needs. Just keep and eye on it.

Probably not a good idea to have an anemone in a tank you just put 300 pounds of new live rock in. They really need a stable tank. Can you return it for now?

Tank parameters are fine. I'm just going off the sound advice of Mike at www.liverocks.com He deals with large amounts of rock everyday and he said it would be no problem so I took his advice.
