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.

You can try to block off the back of the system with some LR rubble.
