Introducing a BTA to aquarium ...

I just bought a bubble tip anenome for my 30 gal. and it is acclimatising at the moment,

is there any way in which i can control where it goes when put it in because the last one i tried went and settled at the back behind the rocks where it couldn't get any light (stupid thing!?) and died after a week or two, i couldn't even get behind the rocks to get it out, luckily it didn't affect the water too much and nothing died, anyway, how can i keep it at the front of the tank without touching it?

Btw, i'm using a 150w 'Halide and (2x) 42w actinics, the tank has been established for about a year.

There`s no way to keep him still. He will move till he finds the perfect spot. If you try to glue him to a rock he will rip his foot and die. That`s just the life of an anenomie owner

nope BTA's are known for thier movement and there is really no safe way to control where they go.
