you really don't want to try and physically move the anemone where you want it to be

you want to create the right amount of flow in the area that you want it

i don't care for Jim Stime, but here is anemone acclimation

If not acclimated to intense lighting, anemone will hide from it under rocks and lean out when they are ready for it.

Nice looking nem, hopefully he moves out to where you want it soon. Like posted above try to provide an ideal place for it with water flow and lighting and over time it will get there. Also don't try to manually move the nem as you may hurt it, as an alternative try to aim a powerhead at it so its unhappy and moves on its own. Wait a week or so before doing this though so you nem can find its own spot unhindered. Any undue stress may upset it.

I'd be more concerned about that hair algae, as nems need pristine water.
