You tied down an Anemone??? I can't believe I just read that? That is crazy..
How about shutting off the tunze for 4-5 hours so the poor creature can get a foothold. Anemones are delicate critters and should only be kept in mature tanks with proper lighting and great water quality. It kills me when people don't do research on something before they buy it.
Ok, off my soap box

Obmanta, how did you acclimate the anemone to your tank? What type of water are you using

heheh whhhhoooaaaa boy. Hold up there sparky. Actually I wrote in to wet web media and got the idea from a direct reply from Bob Fenner. You take some soft netting like cheese cloth and weight that down with your rock work or use fishing line. This creates a loose zone over the anemone that doesn't allow it to be picked up and blown around.
I have an 18 month old tank with 4X400W XM MHs for light. I use RO/DI water for everything, and my water quality could take the pepsi challenge with natural sea water any day of the week. I acclimated the anemone with about a 4 hour slow drip with the bag floating to keep temp stable.
Its 7:15 a.m. so i'll give your horrible attitude and conclusion jumping hissy fit the benefit of the doubt. It just kills me when people don't do their research before they flame people who did.
Ok, off my soap box

Thanks sparky

"This long tentacle anemone has been taking a while like 2 hours and still isn't sticking. I turned off the powerheads so that he can have a chance to stick without floating to the corner of the tank. Any suggestions?"

<Good idea on turning off the powerheads... Like you say, some species, individuals stick right away, some never do... Very frequently these animals (actinarians) have torn bases... from rough collection... A tried and true "trick" is to use some soft netting or similar material to tie the animal down temporarily... weight the ends/corners down with some small rocks. Good luck. Bob Fenner>

Sorry if I came off too strong.. I like the description on how you tired/held it down now.
When you just said tied down I pictured it wrapped up with fishing line like some hog tied cattle 8O

And I was not and did not mean to direct the water quality, mature tank statement at you, I was just making a blanket statement based on many posts on this forum.
So many people just buy these anemones after a LFS tells them its ok to have them in a tank and they do not research it before hand.
Again sorry for the miscommunication Brisco.

No sweat, I appologize for my rudeness as well. Early and offended are bad times to post, hopefully one day our computers will tell us to have another cup of coffee before we start typing lol. For what its worth i think the foot took hold this morning. The technique really worked well. rather than blowing around inside the net it was wedge among some rocks I placed within the net, so hopefully I can remove it tonight.
