Any tips to de-attach an anemone

As you can see, the green star polyps close to the anemone wont open due to the anemone's tentacles. Any idea how to separate them?

Put a power head aimed directly at it. Should detach and move.

if the anemone is happy dont move it. frag the gsp or let it get stung, GSP is pretty invasive anyways and the nem could keep it in check.

The power head is in there for more than 3 hours with a little progress.

Well, the anemone looks happy but he is facing down that when the light is on he stretch his leg to get some light. So am thinking it is better for him to be in a place where he gets direct contact with the light.

the anemone will move where he wants, its not a coral its an invert and can move very well on its own. How old is your tank, maybe it is not mature enough for a nem yet?

Recently knew that he is like an animal lol. I was going for GSP but the anemone was attached to the rock so took him for a good price. The tank is 5 months old. May I ask how would you know if the tank is ready to start introducing the corals and inverts?

usually it takes a year for a tank to be ready for a nem, the nem requires intense lighting and perfect water params.

Well, I read this in many places that I should wait at least a year before introducing any anemone to the tank. But when I read that, I already have two anemone. Actually one of them was bleached when I purchased him and he is recovering now.

See this picture.
