I would not "place" the anemone anywhere. It's obviously not happy if it's buoyant and bouncing around. I would focus on water quality. If lighting was the problem, it would be attached and stretched out to increase surface area, not trying to get away. Test strips are not accurate, and if you intent to keep sensitive creatures, I suggest a better, liquid kit. If nitrates are your problem, which might very well be the case, I would be doing water changes and cutting back on feeding.

I'm sorry to say I'm pretty sure that he died. He was all balled up an no response when I touched him. I took him out of the tank and the smell was horrible, like it was rotting. I'm pretty sure he was dead. I have a 50 gallon tank last week I did 15 gallon wc. And every week before tat I do at least 7 gallon wc. Weekly. My fish had ick so I was told to feed them more, so I think that is where my nitrates were from. My fish are better and cut back to once a day. I feed pellets and frozen 2 to 3 times a week. I have 2 clownfish, 2 chromis, and a scooter benny ad well as a clean up crew.

Let the tank settle in a bit before you get another anemone. Clown fish don't need anemones, so you can take some time and correct your parameters.
