A lot of them melt down in less than 24hours. Sounds to be setting up and enjoying your tank.
My question is: why doesn't it move to the desired location? Its root is far in the rock bed. On the day time, it just moves the body out only. Would not it be better if it move the whole thing to the better location?

Anemone is stuck to pineapple brain coral

Hello everyone,

I am new to this community and to reefing.. a few days back i got a green BTA which i left on a rock.. i found the next day that it had attached itself to the pineapple brain coral.. i had read somewhere that it may sting other corals so i tried to gently remove him from the coral but it was stuck pretty well.. My question is that should i just let it be and find its own sweet spot or do i need to remove him from the coral.. the pineapple brain coral hasnt opened since the....i have attached an image for reference..

Any help will be much appreciated..!!

Oh no! The anemone has nemotocyst that will sting all sorts of animals including corals. I might try and aim more flow twards the anemone to encourage it to move via powerhead. Good luck, it may take a little while for the anemone to settle in.
