What kind of lighting do you have? Most likely it is moving to find better light. If you don't have the lighting to support them, it will most likely keep moving and get sucked into the powerhead until you get better lighting.

You have the lighting for it then. I'm clueless as to why the other one is moving.

Abe, I guess you will just have to keep your eyes on it and hope it settles down in a good spot.

Corals yes! An Anemone is NOT a coral. Please do not attempt to glue this animal down to anything. You will kill it.

As TC said you cannot glue an anenome down it will rip his foot and after he does that there is no hope. Also one thing I want to stress esp. to others that might see this. Anenomes need to be in a very mature tank of at least 9-12 months. Also just because a friend goes ahead and buys them doesnt mean they have to go in the tank. Many a person has let their family and friends buy stuff that should not go in their tank and feel obligated to put it in the tank. IMO do your research and turn down request to put something in the tank until you know what the deal is. It`s your tank and your tankmates. You are responsible not them. JMO
