    Take out your credit card....
    Slide it underneath the base. Be careful as not to hurt it.


    Doubt you should use one of the new chipcards / smartcards.

    yip, he will. :)

    check today, place it under the lights, not in direct flow, and see if it settles.

    Normally, especially at LFS, when the anemone move up the glass, it is trying to get more light. So what lights do you have and is it enough, not too old, or whatever. Or was the anemone too low down in the tank and the quickest why it found to get to the light was up the side (it does not have eyes.) So maybe put it first on top of your live rock stack. Unless you cannot get it out the corner. Then next time.

    I like to use my fingernail to remove them when they are on the glass. However, that may not stop it from moving back to the glass.

    Is this a recent addition? If not, do you know why it moved?

    i also have a nennie question: no intention to hijack thread if my post is a problem the i will remove it.

    my magnifica loves flow.. should i be worried.

    i feed him dried shrimp once a day with my hand
    colour is great
    Min time a spot is 3 weeks
    i have him about 4 months
    hosting 3 of my 7 clowns
    been in the spot below for the longest now 4 weeks, he likes sitting ontop of the liverock pillars.

    not the best pic of him but thats where he likes to be.

    Depends on species. Bubble tips prefer less flow.

    You cannot place an unattached anemone in direct flow. Will blow him away.

    Most anemones like high flow, but also not with powerhead directly aimed at them. Yours is pushing the most of the flow above him. Yes, Magnifica like high light, and higher flow compared to bubble tips. If your rock stack was higher, he would move up most likely.

    when my nennie walked onto the glass I tickled it off, time consuming but safest in my opinion...

    he moved there from a higher stack with more light and less flow.
    he is much smalller where he is now i think because of the flow.
    when he opens up he is the size of an official rugby ball.

    i let him decide where he wants to be, but if he decides to sit on a coral i move him,
    if he just passes over the other coral its fine. he does no harm.

    should i move him from the high flowing area?

    Edit: i do not place him, he goes where he wants
    only if he sits on another coral i will move him to one of his previous spots.

    @Anemone We save this "little" buggar from a tank that was just 8 weeks old and th LFS sold it to the mariner. after a discussion Steve collected it from the guys home and brought it into our tank - Our tank is cured really well and have been running Eons.

    It was burned on some of the tips on the one side - but have been recovering the last week. some of the tips are still short but Back to pink and no more white.

    When do you think this Anemone will start eating? It soes not want to eat if we give him food.

    I would leave the anemone exactly where it is for now. Don't want to stress it out more. When you say "burned" do you mean from a heater? What have you been feeding the anemone? How big are the portions? Did the mouth appear to be damaged?

    Feed raw meaty seafood, not dried, or cooked. You do not need to feed daily. Once or twice a week is fine. Less, if you heavily feed your tank.

    I suggest moving the adjacent coral. Those sweeper tentacles on the frogspawn and tentacles of the anemone are not doing anyone any favors if they can touch each other.

    The higher flow is fine. This anemone also requires very high lighting.

    I am seeing something strange on my nennie at the moment. a little white spot at the end of a tentacle. And when the tentable is puffed up and transparent it looks like a minute little ball of wool or worms. can it be worms/parasites or the nennies nervous system.

    Trying to get a pic but not clear enough.
