Keep a close up on it, do a water test as well.

You may have to remove the bits of the nem from the tank.

Unfortunately nems and powerheads never mix, they always seem to find the powerheads in the tank.

When anemone walk it's normally because they are looking for more light, food or flow. It is possible that he will keep walking if it isn't happy. How often do you feed it? How long have you had it?
