    I have a purple tip anenome that was pulled into my movement and circulation pump. I managed to get removed and now it appears not to be able to reattach itself because when I plug the pump in the anenome moves around the tank until it again gets sucked into it. Any suggestions??

    How big is your tank? What is the condition of the anemone after the pump conflict? If it has expelled chemical warfare into your tank you might need to do a water change. If its now floating around turn off your return pumps and let it try and re-attach itself. You also need to address why it went into the pump in the first place.

    My fish tank is 55 gallons. The anenome does not appear to be damaged, but does not re-attached as it floats toward the pump when it is plugged in. When the pump isn't plugged in, it pretty much stays in one place. I do have two maroon clownfish that go into to the anenome.

    Leave the pump off overnight and see if it re-attaches itself

    Can you post a pic and your water parameters? How long has your tank been up and running? What equipment do you have? How long have you had the anemone?

    I would keep the clownfish away from the anemone.
