    So I finally picked up a mini maxi anemone yesterday. After acclimating I attached the plug he came on to a larger piece of rock and placed in the tank. I placed it in a high light medium flow spot and it seemed to be doing well last night. This morning it is on the loose and nowhere to be found. :frustrat: I was only able to look for a few minutes as I was on my way out the door for work.

    Anything I can do if I find it later? Or do I have to let it choose its own spot? If I can't find it, will it eventually show up???

    Suggestions?

    He'll walk around until he finds a spot he likes. Just make sure it's not on the underside of a rock.

    If he is on the underside, I would imagine he will come out on his own, right?

    I had 5 of them and a couple never moved and 1 was always on the move. Almost like they have their own little attitudes. When you find it, be sure to take pics. Really cool critters.

    Good news, it's a Ginger! It came out from the underside of a rock last night. It showed up right before lights out.

    It's still in the same spot as of this morning! Not my ideal placement, but I guess I don't have a choice, LOL. I will get some pics this weekend.

    I gave it a small piece of food last night, I couldn't resist....wow, was that cool. Amazing little creatures.
