Hi Karen, my new Rose arrived from Jason yesterday, it immediately hid in between 2 rocks. Last night, after lights out, it was out having a look around, but this morning was back in hiding. Is this normal and I just leave it alone, ?

Morning Mike, that is perfectly normal, each day it will move closer to the light and show itself as it gets used to your tank.
They usually wont eat while in this situation as are allready nerveous so just leave him alone, seems that hunger also will bring them out after a few days so just leave him alone.
I have added two to my 125, both in hiding but fully bubbled.
One has moved from one end of the tank all the way over to the large rose on the other end during the night, amazing how they seem to find each other,
Took some pics this morning of them. Will post them under my 125 thread.
Post pics when he comes out ok.
We love seeing those pretty roses.

Not panicking, but a little nervous. The Rose keeps going back into the rocks totally out of site, it is eating daily when it is out, but seems to hide at random times more than it is visible. :?

Well gosh Mike, Can you get a picture of it for me?
What kind of lighting do you have on your tank?
Also water flow?
They like to blow a bit in the current.
Will be back to check for a reply

Sorry no pics, hiding again. Water flow is medium, swaying beautifully when out, looks just like the ocean. It is right on the bottom, 24 inches, under T5s, def not to much light. Strange tho it seems real happy when its out, still pale but that's all

It's been 10 days I beleive?
It should come out soon.
They usually show themselves sooner then this but if he is eating and attached then he is ok.
Does he open ,then you feed him, then he closes up again?
If so, stop feeding him now till he comes out and stays out for a few days.
He may be just be eating and resting.
That will let you get a good look at him to see how he looks. Going a week wont hurt him without food. The little dickens:)

incognito anemone :wink:
They can be funny critters for sure.
Sometimes they just wont show themselves out front like we would like them to and there isnt much we can do about that.
One thing you can try tho if you want him to move is put a powerhead blowing on him, he will get tired of being blasted and move, sometimes to a better place, sometimes not.
I would just leave him alone and let him rest.
Moving is a hard thing on them and it sometimes takes a month for them to settle in, sometimes a few days.
You have the month model :roll:

That just isnt right, lol.
I hate when they hide, I have one that is doing that now, facing the back, but at least I can see his tenticles so that he can be fed.
Just read Nina's thread, that is horrific.
You just never know what will happen with loved ones.
I pray that they can cure him and he will get his health back.
