I purchased a neon green carpet anemone 3-days ago hoping it would get along with my saddle back clownfish. The anemone was acclimated using the drip technique then added to the tank. It moved around a little the first day, the clownfish love it, and won't leave it alone.
However, when I woke this morning it was face down on the sand bed. I tried flipping it over w/my net but it went back to being face down. I'm concerned that the clownfish may be overwhelming the anemone or maybe its just acclimating itself to my tank. Does anyone have experience w/neon carpet anemones? I'd appreciate any carpet anemone acclimation tips.
I've included a pic taken yesterday when the anemone seemed to be doing fine.
