    I bought a bubble tip anemone and it has moved to the back of the tank and you can barely see it! will it move back towards the front? or should i move it to the front?

    It will move where it wants o. If you move him, he will move again until he finds his happy place. If he's on a rock that's easy enough to turn, you can face it towards the front of the tank so you can see him. But again, he may or may not move again...

    Sometimes, BTAs move into a dark area or under a rock to split. You may have gotten a two for one deal! I agree with Troy - wait until it is firmly attached before you try to move the rock. If you just bought it, give it a week to figure things out in your tank. It may very well move to a location you like.

    Yea, let it be. It will move all around until it gets settled. I've had some success with spot feeding with a turkey baster once it moves to a spot you like. Also, IMO it will settle in a place you can build around it and it looks good.
