I've had a new long-tentacle purple anemone for about 3 weeks. The problem is, he won't plant his foot in the sand anywhere. He's definitely staked out his spot in the tank (i've moved him about 5 times and he always returns to the same place) but he just won't plant. He looks all sorts of healthy, and eats like a champ. My question is, is this a problem? Are there long-term problems with not planting his foot in the sand?
ph: 8.0 (i can't seem to get it any higher)
Alk: 9 dKH
here's a pic of the guy. The tomato is already very attached to the nem. He clears the sand around the crown of the nem (sometimes it lays down, sometimes it's standing propped in the rocks as you see it in the pic...always very open and hungry though).
