Its his fault

Well. He brought hime a bubble tip anemone that i have been wanting for years. He kept moving it and this afternoon it was flipped upside down from the wrasse.

I'm not a nem expert put you can put it back in the rock. It will move where it wants. It doesn't look dead.

Yes, you can't move it and you certainly can't if its foot is attached. Damage to the foot will lead to its demise. It will move around until its found the place it likes best, might not be the place you like best tho! When I first got mine it faced the back wall for 4 months...

I'm sorry. Yes if it's attached then you don't wanna injure the foot. You try to very carefully coax it off. But If its not gonna budge then leave it. It will realize there's a better place and move.

They can take time to settle in. Mouth wide open isn't a great sign but it could also be expelling waste! How did you acclimate?

Oh dear, I am afraid no amounts of t8's are going to satisfy an anemone. Were you thinking of upgrading in the future? I had a nem under 4 x t5 and it still wasn't enough! For a 55g (same as mine) 6 x t5 set up would work, otherwise go down the LED route
