Are you running a skimmer? That will oxygenate the water while you shut the powerheads off.
I still have water flow, because I have the water being returned in the tank from the return pump. I do have a skimmer. I have a Bubble Magnus. I'll have the powerheads on while I'm keeping an eye on the tank, but I think for sure at night they are going off. I'm so worried about that part of getting this creature.

Sounds perfect. Once they sink their foot into a place and settle down, they don't really move that much (although they can move again, so keep an eye on it). Keep in mind that if you are shutting off the flow at night that he might move again in the morning when you turn it back on. It might be better to move the powerheads "out of reach" for now so he can't just crawl over to them and get stuck in them. I have unfortunately peeled an anenome out of a powerhead. Not a fun morning at all...

What do you mean, out of reach? Mine aren't really that close to any rock. One of the powerheads the anemone could reach if he got on a large cabbage leather and reached 3-4 inches. I figured they'd get caught by floating around the tank. To me the only place out of reach, would be out of the water

I do understand, that of course when the powerhead is off, the anemone may continue to search for a "better" location with flow, but I read someone recommended that, so I thought I'd try it.

It won't hurt to try it.

I mean that I only had problems when the powerhead was accessible by the rock itself. I didn't have a problem with the anenome floating as much as crawling.

Okay, good to know. I'll keep you posted. I will probably start a new thread, to track how it does etc.

Looking forward to it's arrival :)
