    Sorry to be posting so many questions about this anemone... I thought I researched it enough, but it keeps doing things I dont understand!!

    It started moving off a piece of LR I had him on this morning, he kept on filling himself and then emptying himself, to move I think?

    But now he is upsidedown because he moved himself off the rock slowly and just kinda ended up that way, should I flip him, does he want to be upsidedown?? or will he move back to right side up by himself???

    You can flip it right side up but it will continue to move until if finds a place that it likes. :)

    it made its self fall to the bottom layer of my tank and is kind of sideways now stuck to the glass I tryed to scoot it over a little because its in a kinda tight spot between the rock and the glass, but he is now stuck to the glass so I didnt want to hurt him by moving him
    i guess he wants to be sideways for now...

    now that it is perched on the glass he isnt really moving anymore (his tenticals and stuff) is he just tired from all the moving?? or is something else wrong?

    good luck, the last Seabe I had did that until it died. Seabe's are on the hard side to take care of. How new is your tank?

    Like stated below, it will be "walking" around until it finds the "sweet spot".

    Leave it be! Anemones will always move til they are happy where they are. Also removing an anemone once it is stuck somewhere isn't very easy and could unjure the anemone, similar to Tridacnid Clams and their byssal strands and foot!

    I agree in leaving it where it is. The area that is most detrimental to it's survival is that foot. If that gets injured, the prognosis is not good. I had some kid get a little to overzealous getting a bta out of their tank and over the next few days it turned itself upside down until the mouth disintegrated away. I got rid of it before it poisoned the tank.
