rose anemone behaviour

hello
i am not sure if this has been talked about b4
but i did look up and i didnt find anything related

yea well i got my rose anemone 2 weeks ago
placed it on a good spot on the rocks
then it moved to a crevice under a rock
knowing that they move alot, i left it and observed
oh and my maroon clown dove rite in on the 2nd day
but now my anemone likes dark places
and now its in a crevice witout light
and its all stringy looking
because of lack of sunlight
is this usual for rose anemones???
would it move or would it stay and die???

sometimes fish stores do not have good lighting, when you bring the anemone home it cannot adjust to stronger lighting of your home aquarium right away. you need to light accilimate it rather than keep on your regular light schedule.

and knowing that anemones move a lot, especially under stress, you can turn the rocks so the anemone is on the lighted side. once it gets used to the lighting, it'll stick.

yeah the anemone liked it on the star when i first got it.

i held my breath and hoped for the best. nothing happened to the polys for a week but i decided to relocate the polyps and found the anemone a new rock with a slight concavity that it could hide if threatened.

it hasn't moved since the move.
