Rose tip bubble anemone moving.

My rose tip has traveled off my live rock and is anchored now on the glass below the intake in my tank

Should I move it? How do I get it off the glass without hurting it?

Thanks in advance

If you move it most likely it will move again they will move place to place where they are happy but if it's still on the glass and you really don't like it there get a bag of ice and tape it to where it is on the outside of the tank and it will go off after the base will get cold but do not stick and ice cube in the water to get her to pull off her base it can really hurt them but I would just leave it and she'll move on her own if she's not happy

Sounds like it is trying to get more light. What kind of lighting is over the tank? These guys need intense lighting to survive.

Thanks for all the replies
It's A 20 gallon Nuvo tank with a pair of 18w SKKYE lights ( 3x10k and 3x456nm color)

All water parameters are normal.
Although salinity dropped to 1.24.
I did a 30% watt change today and it's back to 1.25

I did end up moving the coral onto some cracks in my live rock. Seems to be doing ok, it's moving a bit , but seems happy . Unfortunately my torch is now looking very sickly . Any ideas ? I attached some photos Click image for larger version

Normal means many things to different people. What are you exact parameters?

That's also no where near enough light for a BTA. It's not happy in the most recent picture either.

And +1 with hank, with out numbers we can't help.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
If you mean nitrite is at .25, that could be the reason things aren't happy. Have you tested alkalinity?

I am out of alkaline test stuff, have to get some in the next day or so.. Also I did a 30% water change yesterday, so I will retest in a day or so, once everything settles out.
