    Got up this morning only to find my green bubble tip
    had taken a walk over to my wave maker.
    Two tenticles have been cut off.
    how do I get him off with out damaging his
    foot?

    I would just remove the wave maker from the tank. My carpet anemone just let's go when he is held in air.

    I held it upside down for about 20 seconds and it dropped down into the tank.

    I know its late, but the best way to get an anemone out of a pump is just to switch the pump off. It will climb out by himself. Especially if it is sucked in halfway or more into the openings.

    Thanks RaainP.
    Turned power head off and placed it on my rocks. My anemone walked off and has gone back to its original spot.added an extra power head pointed in its direction.

    how strong is this powerhead?

    Anemones like good flow, but do not want to be in a hurricane.

    Glad the anemone is ok! Some are very stubborn!

    When I moved my tank it would not lot go of the rock! 30min hanging up side down did nothing!
