Anemones are the same as any other lviing organism, it's going to migrate to the area that it finds most suitable. Unfortunatley that's the name of the game, and moving to the back it may have found it's most favorable spot.

I can't tell you exactly what's comming out from it's mouth, but generally I have never seen this as a good sign. How old is your tank (How long has it been cycled?)? The general rule of thumb is 6+ months before adding any sort of anemone to the tank (They do best in mature tanks where your water parameters arnt bouncing around as much).

The anenomes like to shade their foot so they`ll move that to an area where they can hide that part and swing out to get the light they need. You`ll need more lighting. Your LFS gave you some bad advice. Also what are your water test results? Anenomes need to be in a very mature tank of at least 9 months to a yr. Another thing your LFS forgot to tell you.
