GBTA Perched under a rock

I added a GBTA to my tank on Tuesday. I acclimated for about 1.5hrs. I turned all power heads off so that he could get positioned onto sandbed or rock of choice. The next day I found him perched under a rock. He's been there since.
My tank is a 135g and all perams are good.

He ought to... will the size and positioning of the rock he is on allow you to move it a bit to get him more out in the open? What kind of lights?

I have t5's. That particular rock is drilled and rodded. I've moved him once and he went right back to the same spot. Maybe he's still acclimating.

too much flow, anemone doesn't like too much flow, in fact they prefer indirect low flow
