suicidal condy (pic)

ok so ive had my condy for about a week, and its been happy as a lark in the same spot all week. i was just watching it and then went down stairs to get a hot dog and when i came up it had moved all the way over and was on my powerhead! i unplugged it, and the condy looks fine, but i'm scarred to plug it back in. any suggestions?

Get a filter sponge from the lfs and cut a slot in the end of it. Slip it over the intake . I've had to do this as well and it work great.

Good luck !

I lost a RBTA the samw way, for some odd reason they like being in the flow of the intake of a powerhead I think. mine would go strait to the powerhead every single day and no matter what I did it would do it. I tried everything. then one day while it was deflated, it slipped through the "cage" I had around the PH and met it's end.

good luck, but me personally..... I'll never buy an anemone again (well maybe never)
