Bubble tipped anenome

I just got a bubble tipped anemone. After roaming my tank it has decided to stay right on my polyps. How do I get it off? I don't want to rip of the polyps when I take it off.

Try pointing a powerhead at it.

Unfortunately you can't really move a nem, it will go where it likes, stinging corals along the way
To much risk of damage if you try and pull it off. It is unusual tho to be on top of your polyps - have you got a pic?

I managed to get it off the rock by angling in it a way that made it uncomfortable / pointing a powerhead at it. Now it found a spot far away from my polyps. Yay!!!
