iIalready have it(was going to wait atleast 6 months but read further for explanation), I have 175w 10k MH lighting my friend bought a long tentacle anomone and he has an eclipse setup and being a retard he didnt know. Everything tests perfect. Tank is only a month old(i had a 4 day cycle), I need to know where to put him in the tank for best survival possibilities, as i realise they are low. He looks VERY health but doesnt seem to like the little spots I put him in, probably becuase he gets blown off the better spots.

I'd place him in a low flow area on the rock so he's not being blown around and has time to get a grip. He will find his own spot.

Ya I thought the same thing, but yesterday I put him in a spot with a crater in it, he crawled out of it. The spot was right next to my powerhead stream, he took about 2 steps the wrong way and got blown across the whole tank. I will try again

Don't keep moving it. Constant moving by you can be very stressful. If all is well in your system, it will get a grip and move to where it wants to be. To much involvement from you may stress it to the point of no return. I'm sure you know this already but be sure your intakes are covered so the anemone doesn't get sucked in.

shut off the power heads for a few hours so the thing can get a foot hold...

I'm a little concerned about my anemone still, it seemed to be doing fine in the place I put it. I just got home from a party and its out and about trying to move. Are they pretty good at scaling rocks and stuff? Just by looking at most my peices of rock, it seems like it would be nearly impossible for it to climb up and move around. Anyone confirm this?
