Jeff.. Mr X has been on AA for a long time and he knows what he is talking about. Seems you are over simplifying things, giving nems human like characteristics of getting bored.. im sure each nem can be a little different, but theyre not going to move unless something is wrong.. ie flow, water quality, light, predators, stinging corals, fish trying to host, etc.

What I am saying is that these invertebrate have no brains as we know of, but their nerve cells acts as their brain to make decisions and move around. Here is a quote from an article below.

"Sea anemones have no central brain, but a simple network of nerves in the body wall communicates between different parts of the anemone's body."

This is how octopus makes use of their nerve cells as well but are far smarter than anemone.

Another quote from an interesting article below.

"Anything the sea anemone has that also is found in humans, flies, snails or any other eumetazoans must already have been present in the common ancestor of eumetazoans,"

I also turned down the whites on my LEDs but about 10%. It has definitely moved up back beer the top of my rock scape. I turned them down 2 days ago and I'm already seeing the corals look better too.

I said they get bored but you're right my tank is a failure. It was a reference not to be taken literal. The tank has been up for a while with that nem and all I'm saying is nothing in my tank changes to cause it to move. My nem is smarter than yours don't be mad I'm just kidding around there was no need for an argument. This is what makes people quit reading forums though. A main reason I left my last one. Everything was a competition for correct answers. I haven't nor has anyone else been an anemone I don't imagine. They do things for reasons unknown. Lets get back to the reason for this thread. OP you have the floor now.

Jake how stable is your temp and what is your setting? It was cooler during the last 3 months when it stayed on the same spot. Now it is getting hotter. I would set heater close to day time temp so that at night it will not swing that much.

^ that and adjusting the lights are good reasons for the movement.. keep things stable a while and it will stick some where that its happy. Just be careful that it doesn't wander near a power head or the overflow and dont force him to move.. if you try to pry him off a rock you can damage its foot which is often fatal.

Well Jeff, my temperature stays between 78-80 pretty much year round. I live in Florida so I only run a heater in winter for about A few weeks when it gets cold here

That is why I named the thread last go at RBTA. The first guy ended up in a power head at night. So I got this one and it was fine for awhile. My tank stays pretty stable with everything. I think it comes down to my lights, I really haven't found a happy medium to keep them at. So like I said I just recently lowered them a bit and he has been in the same area for the past 3-4 days.
