I wouldn't move the anemone around too much. It's actually quite stressful for them. If it keeps moving it's because it's not happy where it is.

Also, beware of powerheads.

My Green BTA moved to the back of my tank like 6 months ago and hasn't come back out since. I can barlely see him from the side of the tank but he appears to be doing quite well. It's his loss as I can no longer target feed him. He doesn't seem to care though

Bottom line is these guys are living creatures and you really can't force it to stay in one place. Rarely will one actually like the spot you pick out for it.

Hopefully he is just adjusting to his new home. It is kind of crazy they eat and go to the bathroom from the same place there is not a nicer way of putting it that I can think of. I researched them before deciding my tank wouldn't sustain one.

As said on the first page, Anemones will hide there foot somewhere in the shade and can extend quite far to reach the light. Stop moving him around, He'll move to what he likes. Also, You'll need to invest in some stronger lighting. Are you target feeding the anemone? If so, What and how big? because they will spit out what they dont like or is to big for them if you feed them the wrong thing.

I would not feed him for now. Mine is 11 yrs old and never been hand fed. He gets all he needs from the lighting and water column. BTW just so you can see an eleven yrs old green bubble coral.
