    Anemones have a mind of their own. Just leave it alone and it will have likely moved by the time you do a water change. If not, work the water change so the water doesn't drop below the level of the anemone.

    Most anemones can take a very short period of time out of water.

    He may move if you change the current or light intensity.
    When they move right to the top of the glass, sometimes this is a sign that lighting is not strong enough.

    It’s still on the move round the top of the tank I do a partial water change every 2 week and it’s due so was going to try lowering the level slowly hoping it will move down with the dropping waterline

    It might move down, then move back, when he becomes happy, he’ll stay
    If he came from a high light environment to a lower one, he’s reaching
