Bubble Anemone

Do bubble anemones move to where they need to be as far as lighting and water movement go? I ask because i got one 5 days ago and i had it on top of a rock and it moved down to the bottom and then now its back to the same rock but underneath. I read that they need high lighting so i would think under the rock it might not be getting sufficient amount of light.

They will move around until they find a suitable place that's jut right for them. Once they find that spot, they pretty much stay there, unless something is bothering them (i.e. other fish, flow, etc...)

BTA moves for 2 reasons
1) They searching for better suitable location ,flow/light etc. If this is the case, it is fine except it will probly sting couple other corals while it is moving.

2) They moves because they are stressed, it can be the clown fish, ( larger size clown trying to host small BTA can do that), or it can be stress due to the new environment as well, water chemistry /flow or even slight lighting can cause this. If it starts run behind rocks, under rocks then it is because the stress that it want to hide from all the "traffic" If that is the case, you have to let it come out itself and hope it will. The more you handle it, the more it will run away.

They will move till they find a spot they are happy with, from the pics it looks like you have a cyano problem which comes from nitrates and/or phosphates and anemones don't like high levels
