You shouldnt pull a nem off like that, its better to let it move or force it to move by making it uncomfortable. If you pull it off you might hurt its foot and it could die..

I was thinking of turning off the wavemakers to see if it moves. It might like the flow where it's at and that's why it's not moving. It's only the second day though and it's not bothering any of my corals so I also might just leave it alone.

I have a new problem though...

This is a picture if my new yellow watchman I just received with the anenome order. It's also a picture of my drain. Reefs to go sent me the smallest watchman they could find and this little guy somehow has ended up here.

Can you put something over him (not right on top tho) to block the light. He might move on his own then for better light.

I would hit it with direct flow from a powerhead, force him to move .

Mine is still in the same position. It's been about a week now. Going to leave it alone for another week. If it doesn't move then I'll try to hit it with direct flow or a rock.
