How did it lose its tentacles? Was it caught in your powerhead? Is the foot damaged at all? Pics would help too.

The anemone's foot seems to be fine when I moved it to the front of the tank it moved and hung upside down untill it moved again, it never got anywhere near power heads or al least I never saw it go anywhere near it. I got the power heads from my lfs at the same time I got my tank and he said they were more than good enough unfortunately I can't remember the flow I have attached photos so maybe you could tell by looking I have one in each corner of my tank (aquareef 275)

That looks terrible, but it's not dead. You can't just move an anemone wherever you want. The reason it moved in the first place was because it was not happy. How long have you had it? How long has the tank been up?

Hi the tank has been set up for about 7 months now and had the anemone about 3 months, its on the move again when I got up this morning it had moved back around the back, could it he the water flow could it be worth getting another power head and putting it closer to the bottom of the tank to give more flow there ??

Let it go where it wants to and watch it for a little while. See if it recovers. If it didn't move for the last 3 months, it was happy at that time. Something changed in the tank to upset it. Flow, lighting, or water parameters.
Whenever things look unhappy in my tank, I do a water change.
