    I cant get them to settle. Have tried to place them. I see they did grab on. Wake up in morning and they floating around.

    they will settle eventually.

    But how is your powerheads positioned? They will move out of too much strong flow.

    Condy's move if unhappy. I have had a condy in one place since the day I put it in the tank. Do you have enough substrate, how old is your tank? These are factors that influence the happiness of Condy's. They are easy to keep in well established and well lit tanks with correct environmental needs. I always suggest to peeps that rather get an anemone a year after you tank has been running.

    High nitrates and phosphates normally make my anemones move around. But since they are new to the tank they might still be looking for the best spot i guess
