    Hi guys,

    Got home this evening and I see my magnificent anemone has moved to a lower spot on the side of the rock it was on. So I'm puzzled because this is away from the flow and light. The opposite of what I know about them. The first pic is where the nem was from day one, which is about 3 months now. It's base is picked up on the one side now, sort of like it's trying to level out so the complete surface of it gets light. still looks healthy though. I feed it twice a week. Here are also some pics now. Anyone know why this may he happening? [​IMG] [​IMG] this is where it's moved to now [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    they will move the foot to a secure place, he will extend and reach round. @carlosdeandrade has one that moves right from under a cave to the light

    Might be normal... Just keep a close eye on it for the next couple days. They can lose health very quickly when their not happy.

    Don't feed, it's moving because it is not happy in its current position, feeding will just add to its stress and it will not feed as it's using its energy for locomotion
    Also, these anemones need to have their foot in soil.

    Just started making its way back up. First time it ever moved. Interesting to see where it settles. [​IMG]
