Once the photo is in your album, the easiest way to add it to a post is to open the photo, right+click it and select copy. Then paste it in the message window you want to post it.

In my amateur opinion, he needs to be in a spot that allows him to move into hiding without burying himself. It's hard to tell from that picture, but is there a way to position the rock he's on so that his stem is in the shade, but he's able to move and/or stretch his tentacles into the light?

From everything I've read, if you can do that, it might be the answer to your problems.

Thank you. As of this morning he was father in under that rock and so was Big Mama all I saw was a tiny part of her face. Defiantly time to do some Re-Aquascaping so those two don't end up getting smushed. What can I do to keep him from going underneath over and over again.???

My suggestion is to give him a hiding place closer and more inviting then digging into the substrate.

Give him a good hiding place so he doesn't have to find his own, while making it easy for him to get light if he needs it.

you can't move anemones where you want them and expect them to stay put. you just have to wait and see where it ends up.
i really think moving it over and over is just stressing it unnecessarily.

Did not move him. When I got home Saturday after work he was sticking out a little bit more then he had been. Went about my business and about an hour after I had looked in on it. It was gone from the underneath the rock. It had completed detached himself and when I finally found him I thought it was dead both clown fish was attending to it and it finally re-inflated itself and now again is underneath another rock this time Big Mama can not get to it only Marlin the small clown fish is with it.
I have posted several pictures of it on my profile "GBTA" photo album. Now I just hope that Marlin will feed it because I can not get to it to feed it.

i would let it settle in on it's own. i would only intervene if it started declining.
i have never seen an anemone just die all of the sudden. the ones i have seen die, slowly wither away when they go.

Thanks. I have been reading over some really old post regarding BTA's and I did not know that if the fish is too large for it that it could do more harm then good and I am thinking that this may be the problem with mine "maybe".

yeah, there is an adult maroon clown in the tank i maintain. he really abuses the green bubble tip that's in there. they really need a large anemone IMO. i've just got the ok to remove him. i think i'll replace him with a pair of percs.
