I'd leave it be. Just make sure all your intakes are covered. It will attach when it's ready. How did you acclimate the anemone?

They do not attach right away and you may need to shut down your power heads unitl it takes hold.
Never hear of one either...

Sounds like a beaded anemone, but I'll wait for the pic. As for you cornering it, not a good idea. Unless you've smashed it (even worse idea), there's not real way of cornering one anyway. They can get in and out of some tight spaces.

The clown is just being a clown. No worries there. Don't be surprised if the anemone doesn't stay. Anemones are wanderers til they find a spot that suits them. This isn't always a spot that may suit you but, you can't force them to do or go where you want. Unfortunately.
