here is an update,
after moving it the other day as it was loose and lying on its side, i look at its foot, it seems as though it is now torn. is there anything i can do to help it out i have plced it in a part of the tank were ther is very little flow and its laying on its side again this moring but it had moved from it position it is now about 10cm away from were last placed. But i think the PH's had to do with the relocation over night.

There's lil hope that it will survive since its foot is damaged.

I do not think that the PH pushed it overnight but it moved there on its own. Anems can move quite quickly if they don't like their current place. Just leave it alone, don't touch/move it or u'll risk damaging it more.

My first experience with anem was a Pink tipped haitain anem. I messed/moved/pulled it alot, trying to get it to stay somewhere viewable. I noticed that the more i move it, the more it will try to relocate itself. I ended up damaging its foot . So try not to "control" it too much

I'm one of those fishnutz, who are actually nutz.

Anenomies will move till they find the right spot for them. You cannot try to keep them where you want and wedge them and try to make them stay as they will rip the foot trying to get away. Once they do that there is almost no hope. If you have one all you can do is just let them move to a spot that suits them.
