How old is your tank, how big and what kind of lights do you have? Anemones will move when they are not happy with their current location.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Beat me to it! Lol. I was going to suggest double sided carpet tape. . .

I don't think there's anything to make these guys go anywhere. They just go. I have a bubbletip that decided for his first three weeks in tank to hang out under all the live rock. He finally came out from underneath for a day and I haven't seen him since. I sure hope he isn't disintegrating somewhere.
