Bad news, anemone moved too close to powerhead.

I was watching a movie about twenty minutes ago, and I glanced at my tank. To my horror I saw one of my anemones stuck in the power head. I quickly unplugged the ph and it let go of the anemone. None of the anemone was pulled into the ph, but he does not look so good, has anyone seen them pull out of something like this? Is he going to kill my other inhabitants if he dies? Is there really anything I can do to help? Here is a picture of about one minute after and about twenty.thanks for any advice.

he'll be fine. just let him bounce back on his own. i once had a LTA get sucked into a power head for a few hours. i couldn't get him out. i just left the power head in the tank and slowly (overnight) he removed himself from it and went about his business.

just a FYI, they say anemones moving around often means they are unhappy about something.

Thanks for the advice. Actually his foot did not move he was stretched out all the way to the ph. When I changed to the sand substrate he moved from where I put him to where he is now. He has been in the same spot since, and is still there. I am moving the ph farther away so it does not happen again. I thought the ph was at a safe distance, it was my mistake.

On a brighter note, the other two anemones have stayed right where I put them. I hear that this is rare.

He has been that color since I acquired him. How do I darken him up?
