I hear ya, steve-s. The good news is that I have a new tank coming in the near future (couple months) and my last anemone was alive and well after that long in my tank.
Last night I saw the anemone face down in the sand and thought that maybe it was like that because of the clown pushing it around while playing in it. So, I turned it back over and shoved it under an overhang in my tank (you can see the "bridge" rock at the top of one of the pictures I'm attaching). I figured the rock would keep him from being turned over unintentionally and would shield him from the light that he seems to want to avoid.
This morning he is upside down again in the center of the tank, but looking very happy (see pics). Can they move when upside down with their tentacles or something? Should I allow this to continue? I'm just affraid that I'm not watching him adjust, but watching him sit there unable to move or do anything about his situation.
