Since it moves at night when the light is out, I would suspect it's the temp. I would not turn off heater since you'll never know how cool it would be at night specially when no light is on. Heater has a thermostat and it will not go higher than desired setting. I would set it midway which is 79 deg. What is the brand of heater and wattage?

You aren't going to find a forum that is void of human nature. If you don't want people's input, then maybe an online forum isn't the best place. Perhaps a book might suit you better. That way, if you don't like what it says, you can just tear a page or two out. lol.
Anyway, sarcastic humor aside, I believe there is good information in this thread.

I don't think it's the lighting though, because generally, they (anemones) shrivel up and duck into the rock work or some dark overhang when abnormally strong light is present. I don't see them letting go and blowing around much. How is everything else fairing? What else is in the tank that is now looking better since you toned down the lights?
Which fixture are we talking about?

Ok, I'm done sharing my experience with anyone else. Thanks

I had similar problem before with my 1st anemone. It will never stay put. I just kept on shuffling and replacing the ph with the right combination and enough flow then added 4 T5HO to supplement the Marineland Reef Capable LED. That's when it finally settled down to a spot with moderate flow and enough light. My 2nd anemone just stayed on the same spot where I dropped it.
