    they can and will sulk. take a few days to acclimatise. Biggest concern would be that it does not blow around and end up in a powerhead. Ensure they are covered at least until the anemone settles eventually.

    What is its color at the moment, very white? half bleached?

    I did put a sponge cover over the powerhead and it has a few white lines right now

    Give it time it should come right unless your water parameters and lighting are poor.

    I had one and it constantly moved around until I cleared some substrate, left the pumps off and it attached to the bottom glass. I then piled up a lot of substrate around it to completely cover its base... Happy nennie after that ;)
