    I was wondering if there is a way to make anemones not move around in a tank without hurting them. :~

    Keep them happy? ;) Even then, they're prone to moving... Isolated rock surrounded with only sand might keep some in place

    I just got mine to settle down in the new tank after it moved around for a week. I used some of the nano hydor pumps to get it to stay out some areaS. I had to make sure it had a nice hole to secure it's foot.

    I was thinking of keeping a mini carpet anemone or another type of tiny anemone but I am pretty sure I only one anemone in my tank.
