Anenome Problem ??PLEASE HELP??

I recently bought a bubble tip anenome for my clown who is getting picked by a damsel, in the store it was on the gravel and removed by the manager carfully, it stuck to the edge of the bag and looked really healthy, i took a big risk here because i already lost one of the same species a couple of months back, i placed it on a rock and it had stuck in a few mins, next time i look its gone right behind the rocks, iv'e tried to block off any light getting round the back of the rocks to encourage it out buts its not really helping.

- to get to the point, is there any way i can get it out (without moving all my rocks which have corals on) ??

Btw: what i can see of it looks really healthy.

I'd let it alone. By moving it, you'll only stress it out and by prying it off the rocks, you take a chance of damaging it. It needs time to settle in. It will come out eventually.

these are delicate creatures and they will go where they want and there is nothing we can do about it. If its new it could take a few days to a week for it to adjust to your tank. The anemone will come out when it needs light..

Mine is typically behind my rocks. Every once in a while he'll move up the wall a bit. I don't know how folks get their anemone to be in a sunny spot, but mine will have nothing of it!

I hope you have better luck with yours!

You can also slowly increase the flow in the area that it is and it will most likely move. The key is SLOWLY over a couple of weeks. Don't direct a powerhead at it directly.

Mine has finally moved after being sucked on by my powerhead. It is now stuck to the front of the tank pointing to the back. Looks like a big yellow booger on the glass. Oh well atleast he is happy and still alive after the ph incident.

I think it has settled in a crevice between two rocks, it has no water movement and little light where it has chosen,

is it possible it will starve itself of light and die ?? or will it move if it dosen't like its situation ??

I wouldn't think it would starve it's self but it also will not move to conditions not favorable to it. I would not worry too much on it. It will find somehwere it likes in it's own time. Just try changing the flow gently around it's rock and that might entice it to move. Or just to move further into the rock you just never know with them.

BTAs will do what they want when they want. If they move someplace that you don't like, you don't have much say about it. My BTA walks around constantly, right now, he's so far back in the rocks that my clown can hardly get to it.
