haddoni on the run?

We have had our carpet for a few months and it has stayed in place the whole time now today he just went on the run and I placed him back where he started and when I got home from work he was under the cave he used to be on top of. Why would he decide to head for the dark after being happy with 2 hosts a percula clown and a anemone crab?

Quite possible the water flow has changed in the tank? Or the light conditions have changed. Bulbs aging. Doubtful but if there is somethign new 'up current' of the anenome it might be picking up on some chemical emissions from the new coral and decide it prefers to move away.

Usually when an anenome goes on the move its best to let it find a place it likes vs moving it back. This will only stress the anenome more and often just cause ti to go on another expidetion in your tank.
