anemone sucked into filter intake?

hi i just got a anemone for my tank it likes moving around the tank i am worried it may get sucked into my skimmer intake or filter intake anyway to try to avoid this?? also do anemones move around this often or is it just because it has not found the space it likes yet?

As mentioned above they will keep moving around till they find the right spot as far as flow and lighting. I would think about putting a sponge of filter media over the intake to protect the anenome.
