Where is the anemone residing in terms of height? They will move to where they are most comfortable at and its helpful in telling if its getting the proper light

Its in the same location just fanned out more it looks more like its dancing sorta to me. It is stretching its tentacles towards the top of the tank and moving its bottom up and down but its not closed up.. i think my mom is just paranoid really ...

I read that anemones will stretch their tentacles out to feed. This may be what shes seeing

WHY? It basically takes all the life out that was in it and kills it. You don't want to wash live sand. It helps with everything, from helping with the cycle, and keeping your tank stable.
Without knowing how well the sand bed was maintained or cleaned by someone else it's a huge gamble. Hell, a deep sand bed that's improperly cared for can crash an entire tank. It's better to be safe than sorry imho.



To the op:
Have you looked at a McCoskers flasher wrasse or a snowflake blenny? They are both beautiful fish to have in a tank.

Some other inverts to look at could include a Brittle Starfish, emerald crab, porcelain crab, and skunk cleaner shrimp.

When stocking a clean up crew just stock to the needs of your aquarium. If you start to see some more algae growth then add a few more snails and hermits. You don't want to overload your system with them though as they will start to starve.

If you are still worried about transporting the niger trigger just bring him to the store in a small cooler.
