Drifting Anemone

we have a condy anemone and today it started floating/drifting around the tank...its tentacles are not as open as normal and it seems to be drifting through out the tank. Its not latching on to anything the way it normally does. it still opens and closes through out the day as normal so I know its alive, however I have never seen it drift like this. Is the normal or should i be concerned?

It's not happy where it was. For one reason or another it wants to find a more suitable environment. I would look to the parameters first. How long have you had the anemone? What lighting do you have it under and what size tank is this? What are you using for flow in the tank?
