bubble tip anenome help fast please

I got a bubble tip last night and i put it in the tank. Now i know they will wonder around until the find a place that they like. But mine has seemed to stop in between some rocks were it is dark. Will he come out to the light or do i need to move him? Or should i give it a few days?

Are the lights on in the tank now. Usually when adding new livestock it is wise to leave the lights off for at least 24-48 hours to give the new addtion time to adjust. This is especially important if your lighting set up differs from where the critter came. What kind of lighting do you have? I would guess that the anemone will move around some more once it has adjusted to its new surroundings.

I have power compacts in my tank. About 290 watss of light in a 65 gallon tank. The store i got it from had regular floreceants. So do you think i am frying it since there is som much more light in my tank then where it was at?

So should i give it a few days to see if it comes out? It almost acted like it wanted out of the light. As soon as i put it in the tank it started to head that way. Into the shade

The anemone will extend itself towards the light when it is ready. Never try to move the anemone or interfere with it "settling" unless there is danger of it being damaged by a PH or other equipment. As the others have said all you can do is play the waiting game.

Since it came from a lower lit tank, it may take a little more time to adjust to the new intensity. What color was the anemone when you purchased it?

What are your water paraameters and age of the set up?

Cheers
Steve

The color of the anemone in the store tank was a brown to light brown color with Bright pink tips. It looks very healthy compared to pics that i have seen. his mouth is shut and i know that is good. I mean he looks great just hiding right now. My parameters are

ph- 8.2
amm-o
nitrate-0
nitrite-0
salinty-1.023
and the tank has been running about 8 months. Everything i have in the tank is flurrishing. I have only had one fish die

All seems fine except the salinity. The anemone will do much better in the 1.025-26 SG range depending on the tank temp.

I think at this point you should leave it be and just watch to ensure it does not get to close to a PH or other intake apparatus. It should eventually find a happy place and settle down. Some anemone's can take a few weeks to find the right spot after being introduced to a new home....

Cheers
Steve
