Any ideas on how to move an Anemone?

Post by grawlfang on Tue 27 Dec 2011, 6:07 pm

I wish my Sebae would move back to the front of the tank Sad it is currently in the back left corner where you can't see him and I am afraid to move him manually for fear of tearing his foot. any hints on how encourage it to move? It has moved twice already but seems to go farther and farther to the back of the tank where it can't be seen and further under the rock?

I've coaxed a condy off a rock by gently stroking it from the base toward the tentacles until it eventually let go ( kinda like milking a cow but in reverse). You've got to be reallllllly gentle though.

You might try a small powerhead aimed at it .

Probably a better idea to let the 'nem choose its own location. One of the reasons I won't be keeping one until I get ready for a species tank.

If it's attached to the back glass massage it like donnie was saying while rubbing the area it's at with ice on the outside of the glass.

This took me about 15 minutes with my mini maxi.
