Green Carpet Anemone

hey all, sorry if i put this in the wrong thread im new and think this is right :P

i just bought a green carpet anemone, and put it in the tank. it is sitting on the sand bed right now, closed. (i put it in the tank like 10 min ago)
wut i would like to know is, am i doing anything wrong? there is some sand sticking to the anemone and it doesnt look like its moving :S, i have read up and heard that it "roams" looking for a place it finds happy. I have 2 clown fish about 3 inches long ( Clarkii Clownfish ) they check it out, then swim away.

here is specs on the tank:
lotttta live rock
2 660 power heads
1 koralia 850 gph pwerhead
1 200w heater
filtter
ground probe
1 yellow tang, 2 felmale athias, 2 clarkii clownfish, 1 Purple Pseudochromis, 1 Saddle Valentini Puffer, and about 30 blue leg hermet crabs

60 gallon *long*

It may stay closed for a while till it gets used to the new tank. Over how long did you acclimate it to the tank. If you don't do it real slowly it can cause addition stress. He may "roam" eventually but not always right away. Clowns don't always host right away either. It may take some time. Give it a couple days to really acclimate to the tank before you get to concerned. What kind of lights do you have in the tank?

wow fast reponce! thanks alot!

im new to "reef" so im like extra carefull because it was 150 bucks! lol
it kinda looks like stuff is coming off of it:S when i look close i can see kinda bury stuff rising above it, that normal?

i have a 130w light over my tank

i let it sit in the bag for about 30 min, then slow put it in the tank, i first put it on the rock, then it fell of upside down so it has some sand stuck on it. it is not sitting on the sand close to the cornor of my tank.

iv bin running salt water for a long time now...i tryed going reef a few times but failed for some reasons....i feel confident now because i had fish in it for a while and i tested my water last night, and its perfect.

Same question. That tank looks very new and clean. Possibly too new and unstable for an anemone.

Can you give a few more specs on your tank?
How much lr is "lotta"?
What kind of filter?
Protein skimmer?
What type of lighting?
Water parameters? especially nitrate, SG and pH
