Another green bubble tip question

Ok...So I did a 50% water change over the weekend to combat my algae outbreak. I don't know if this was the cause but, my green bubble tip went behind my rocks. It looks fine but it just moved. Has been in the same spot in front of the rocks since I got it a month ago. Should I move him back to the front where he was before or just let him stay there and maybe move back ( or not ) on his own.

what are you testing with, 0ppm nitrate is impossible.

What lighting?

how high off the tank, what exact bulbs, how many bulbs.

and it is impossible because everything eats, creates waste, etc. Unless you have a tank of just pure water then you cant have 0 nitrate IMO.

A large water change like that is enough to cause an anemone to move.
If it has settled, then I wouldn't worry about it as long as it wasn't a health hazard for the anemone...like close or on a power head or hiding from the light.
Then in terms of the nitrates/phosphates, of course it reads 0. What else is the hair algae consuming?

It's not impossible for a tank to have undetectable nitrates and/or phosphates, but not for one with algae problems.
