as far as i can tell it has not harmed any coral, but it did eat a sailfin that was not doing well and had probably died before it got it. It has stung me while I was cleaning the glass (so I'm very careful now).

Mine was in one place for a long time, but has started roaming. Right now it's up near the over flow and seams like it's happy there.

After thought:
I can make it move with the direction of the water flow. It seams to like just being right outside the main flow.

Yes, They do wonder untill the find a position the feel is best for them, They'll hide there foot and try to get as much light on there tenticles as possible.

But some anemones will not find the "one" spot, Ive had a BTA for about 8 months now and he doesnt stop moving. He'll find one spot, There for a week then gone the next. So yes, Keep a good eye on him as he will kill corals.

And what are you saying about it being sticky? you mean its foot was stuck to something and you unstuck it? if so, Why? but yes, That is right, The anemone has a powerful foot that will stick down to just about anything and strongly.

Well, Hope this helps!
