Bubble tip questions?

So I got a gift the other day and it was a nice bubble tip anemone. I placed him in a spot but he had moved to the middle of my front piece of glass and hasn't moved for a couple of days. I don't want to harm it by moving it, any ideas?

Anemoneas will go where they feel is best for them. Best not to try and move it cause you could damage the foot and they usually die if their foot gets damaged.

you can try mixing up the flow in the tank so he will no longer prefer to be there.

Point a power head right at it, it'll move.

Just make sure to keep those parameters in check and it will do just fine. How big is it? Looks like it has really large tentacles for the size with the clown by it, or are my eyes playing tricks?

So if I wanted an anemonemaminame.... Should I put it in the take first before all corals? What are the chances of them moving across the tank and whipping out everything in its path?

Unknowns. I added my anemone after and before. But even after having a happy spot for months mine decided to move. With proper lighting and flow, it will find a happy spot and should stay there.
