Hey thanks! We weren't sure thought we'd give it a try. We heard they could sit on corals and were prepared... Just not prepared enough for it to take liking to the power head.

Well I'm late to the game, but will still throw my thoughts into the ring.
for future reference, take the power head or whatever the nem is attached to out of the water so that the tentacles/body of the nem is in the water but it's foot is out of the water. Prop it that way and shortly the nem will move.

All you have to do is turn the power head off and let it free itself. No need to stress it more by taking it out of the water. It's not in the power head by choice and will free itself (slowly) when it's not being sucked in any longer. It is however, unhappy with something in the tank. They will inflate with water and become buoyant to relocate in the wild. This is what yours did, and there's not too far to go before hitting a power head....

What might help is you can get some plastic needlepoint cloth;
Plastic Canvas 7 Count 12''X18'' at Joann.com
and construct larger screens around the powerheads.
That would prevent anything from getting too close to the inlet screen without effecting the flow rate very much at all.
That stuff can be melted together easily to form seams.
