How do I get an anemone, who has attached himself/herself

to the inside of the plastic bag it came in, UNATTACHED?

The part that is stuck is about the size of a silver dollar.

TIA

just stick you nail under it carefully and push it off.. I just had to take a BTA out of my tank that was on the glass.. I took my thumb and pushed the nail ajainst the glass and slowly lifted the BTA off the glass. I have heard of people using a credit card also..

If on a rock or something where you cannot get at the base you can also aim a powerhead at it and they tend to lossen the grip.

I typically just gently rub the base until it comes off ...
