Bubble tip on the move

My bubble tip was happy and didnít move from his spot for months. Then I did a water change and he is sitting up near the top of the tank by the water return. I have never seen this before. All water chems look good. The water is reading a little on the hard side. Any suggestions?

I would not do this. You could risk injuring the foot. If it moved it clearly wanted to be somewhere else where it was happier.

You can direct flow at them, they'll most likely move away from it.

An anemone moving wouldnít be about parameters. Itís all light and flow.
If you want to try to move it, which I wouldnít recommend, some people are successful with sliding a credit card gently near the foot.
A safer way is by pointing a powerhead at it.
Either way, something about your water change upset it and made it move. I had one do this after 2 years in the same spot and youíll never be able to pin point down what it was.
