Time to let it adjust at this point. Has it moved anywhere or doing anything?

I agree that the Nem should have been acclimated properly, and this could be part of the problem, but doesn't anyone else think that 86F is too high?

Way too high. Mine completely retracts if my tank hits 84...I keep it at a steady 78.

Do you have any fans? What is causing your heat? I simply run my small window AC unit to keep my temp down since it has been drastically hotter than normal this summer.

My heat is caused by hot summer in Massachusetts

A fan blowing across the water's surface will help somewhat. Might bring it down a couple degrees. Even 83 would be much better than 86.
Hope it comes around for you, it's a beautiful anemone!

Yeah i would totally take one if given the opportunity. You have a good reefer buddy! Get him into the forums so we can see his tank.

Back on topic...yes, a fan will help. Any ac would solve it...but shoot as close to 82 as possible. Thats what i view as as hot as a tank should be.

I don't have an AC unit so I place a standing fan over tank temporary o reduce temp, then once temp is down to about 81/82 I will close hood. The current temp is 84.1
