your anemone might be trying to find the best light /food / water current .feed it .. if you can move it try to put him at the highest point on your rocks. sometimes they do wierd things . check your water.. one more thing buy a clown fish. anemone seem to do better with them.

yea anemones are tricky but enough air flow in their area and calcium can help it survive, check calcium levels and use friendly anemone feeders.

Calcium needs to be normal for everything to be happy but unless it is super low it doesnt effect anemones much.
