Update on the nem. So here we are 4 months later and he was hanging in that spot the whole 3 months cool!! Now we are going in vacation on Sunday for a week and it decides in the last 3 days to start moving again. Already stung some corals at night in the process of moving. So now I got to figure out what to do with it while I'm gone.

Get a tank divider and confine him on one spot while you are gone.

Yea I was thinking about putting it in a tupperware with a bunch of holes in it and some rock in it. It will be like a jail cell but I can't risk me gone for a week and coming home to an obliterated tank.

Not much flow in that scenario. It's your responsibility to take care of the creatures you keep. I would figure out why it keeps moving instead of making it stay put in a less than ideal environment.

If you have the proper tank conditions, water conditions, flow and lighting, nems are care free, they just go about what they do, basking in the light and gently being tossed about,

I honestly can't figure out why. Like I said it was fine for 3 months in the relative same spot, then all of a sudden it started moving. I tried asking it what it's problem was but it didn't answer. The only new thing I have done to the tank is add an ATO. and my salinity seems to stay constant at 1.25. The tank looks pristine and I do weekly water changes. I tried cutting power-heads, I fed it some mysis once a week , don't act like I don't care. My only question is what shall I do the one week in a year I need to go out of town and can't baby sit it to make sure (why)its moving. I love it and so does the clown that hosts it. It's either flow or light?? All of a sudden. My lfs always says I wish I had water as clean as yours.

One word to explain why.....anemones. They are like a kid they get bored sometimes and want to move around. I've never had one stay put very long but I use vortechs in my tank so my flow is never the same day to day
