decided to travel

For 4 years my huge Anemone was sitting in one spot. Suddenly decided to travel. This morning I found it on my front corner. What is the best way to try to remove it without hurting him?.I heard some using power head... Thanks.

It will probably move again once you put it elsewhere. But if you must move it, get the glass near the foot cold(ice or ice pack on the outside) Then you can use a turkey baster to slowly blow the foot off the glass. It will take some time but you won't damage the foot.

You can use a powerhead instead of the turkey baster but use a lower flow powerhead.

Why did he move? Did you change something?

They are pretty easy to get off glass. i just used my hand and sorta nudged the foot a bit and it released. They stick to rock really well but glass is so smooth you can use your fingers. Just go slow and carefull....
