It is usually because its not happy with the conditions, although I have heard nems move for no reason. Do you have consistent, stable water parameters? The right kind of lighting? Nems are pretty hardy but cannot tolerate swings like salinity and temp.

Yup, could be. How often do you test? As long as its regular (particularly salinity) do you have other corals it could sting when it's on the move?

Not a good idea to turn off the heater. It's cooler at night and your temp will definitely swing. I set my heater close to day time temp which it at 80 deg F. Heaters have automatic control (thermostat) and it will not go higher than your setting.
