PTA being weird?

My pink tipped anemone is moving away from the light and into the shadows he's currently almost completely under a rock and I'm not sure what's going on any help?

Standard anemone questions-
Age of tank?
Parameters?
What type of lights?
How long have you had it?

As was told to you before in your previous problems with nems, your lights aren't strong enough. And get the numbers when they test your water. You should also pick up your own test kit.

So as of right now we aren't going to be able to help you and I'm sure you know why your nem is doing this.

Unless you're going to get the light fixture within a week or so, I would seriously suggest rehoming the nem. They require approx. 250 par and your light produces approximately 120 par 5 inches away from the center of the fixture and far far less further away from the fixture.

It won't survive for very long.

Nems don't have eyes. They want more light so they wander. Usually they don't wander in the right direction.
