prasunchoudhari

Tank
What is the water volume of the tank = 150 gallons
How long has the tank been running = 8 years
Does it have a filter = yes (cannister filter. no place to accommodate a sump filter)
Does it have a heater = no
What is the water temperature = 26 degree Celsius

1 x chromies

1 x sebae anemone (added it 2 days back)
1 x nerite snail
1 x nassarius snail

Maintenance
How often do you change the water = weekly, top ups as and when required
How much of the water do you change= 20%
What do you use to treat your water = I use RO, DI water from my aqua guard (same water used for drinking) so i don't treat the water as such
Do you vacuum the substrate or just the water= substrate is vacuumed every 2 months. Other times only 20% water change

*Parameters - Very Important
Did you cycle your tank before adding fish = obviously yes as the tank is running for the past 8 years
What do you use to test the water = API marine master test kit
What are your parameters?
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 10ppm
pH: 7.8

Feeding
How often do you feed your fish = once every night
How much do you feed your fish = one pallet at a time (once the fish eats that pellet, i feed it another one) until the fishes stop eating
What brand of food do you feed your fish = tropical soft line marine sinking granules. Occasionally i feed them with freshly hatched Baby brine shrimps
Do you feed frozen = no
Do you feed freeze-dried foods = no

My tank is fully cycled and has been running for 8 years now. Lately I decided to buy an anemone for the tank at its 8th anniversary.
I have bought a Sebae anemone from a local store that usually deals in good quality marine livestock, but the anemone hasn't settled for 2 days now. This is my first anemone and I am really concerned about it. Since the anemone hasn't settled for 2 days now, I have switched off my canister filter as well as wave maker so that there is very less flow in the tank which I thought was making it difficult for the anemone to settle in some place. but still no success. attaching pictures of the anemone.

thank you in advanced
sequence of the images is as follows
image 1 - pic of the anemone when I was temperature acclimating it.
image 2 - image of the anemone the night when it was introduced to the tank
image 3 - picture of my entire setup (image taken at the time of posting this thread
image 4 & 5 - picture of the current position of the Anemone

please note

i forgot to mention that my tank also contains a mangrove which was introduces to take care of the nitrates when my tank was cycled
