Bta question

Hi I got a new large bubble tip anemone today. About an hour after it was put in it began to move back into the rocks. Now it has about 30% of it out in the light and the rest is in the rocks. When I got my other bubble tip anemone a couple of years ago it never went into the rocks. Is this normal?

I have become a bit worried as he has attached to my pump this is how I lost my other one it got sucked in. This time as a precaution I put some fish net mesh over the inlets of the pump. I hope he comes of it. What I find a little weird though is he is holding onto the pump with his tentacles not his foot. Here's a photo (sorry it isnt the best) Please help I'm worried as he's a beautiful anemone

Well I would get him off the pump he will most certainly hate it there... Anemones will move until they find a comfortable spot and they need to acclimate to a change in lighting

I'm worried to move him. I don't want anything to happen to him. I don't even no how he got up there and he's holding on with his tentacles not his foot.

That's fine to move him then.. And I'm sure he's being sucked onto it rather than "holding" on with his tentacles. If he liked it there his foot would be planted there. But it's your tank so do what you feel is best.

Do you think it would be bad to see if he moves by himself by the morning. It's 11:30pm here now

Shut off the pump and leave it alone. It will untangle itself eventually. Something is not ideal in your tank for it to move all over the place like it's doing.

It was just introduced today. I'm worried about turning it off as its the only pump in the tank as its only a 30 gallon tank

Either that or you are going to kill your anemone. Go out and buy another power head.
When you add an anemone, it should not want to float all over the place.
Check your parameters, and try not to blast it with light immediately.
