    Are you asking "Is there any way that an anemone can move to a powerhead and get chopped?"

    Yes.

    Sorry for your loss. Yes some people install screen on their power heads to help prevent what you experienced. What kind of power heads do you have?

    There is some stuff called 7 mesh it is needle point backing that you pick up at most arts and crafts stores. Some people use nylon stockings but they will have to be taken off and rinsed in RO water regularly. Filter floss and sponge (like you put over a pump intake) could also be used.
