    Just leave him alone. Anenomes can move where ever they want in the tank and usually will find a nice spot to camp out, just out of the current and in the light. He is not falling in the hole!

    Not only is that nem bleached out but it also looks like you're still cycling your tank...

    Not 100% sure but the anemone looks like a "sebae" anemone. I believe they prefer to live with their foot buried in the sand. But as Bob said it will move until it finds its "happy place".

    I also agree with maxi.man that your tank looks a bit young to hose an anemone. A tank should be well established (a few years IMO) before an anemone is added.

    Yeah, he lost a few plate corals and having all kinds of issues. He has been posting on another forum if I remember correctly. Tank is having too many issues and not stable enough to house a nem. I would take it to a LFS until your issues are resolved....

    Still the reply had nothing to do with the OP question. Telling him he has no business keeping a nem (more or less) and telling everyone here how many issues he's having with his tank and how he's posting his issues on other forums. Sure sounds mean to me. Hopefully the OP doesn't agree with me

    Miz sometimes honesty does suck. The op should probably just take a couple of months to let the tank settle in and spend some time researching the hobby. Now don't get me wrong nems aren't puppies and if the op wants to spend money on things he's ill equipped to care for, then so be it. But if you spend that money and then ask how to how to deal with it after the fact expect some pointed answers, particularly with a first tank. These tanks aren't rocket science but they do require forethought, care and some basic understanding of what's going on in that bucket of water, failure to give those before you buy will get you lit up on a forum everytime. Perhaps unfair, perhaps not, but reality nonetheless.
