Our anemone also went into hiding shortly after we put it in the tank. In a couple of days it moved around to a spot that it liked which we liked too! Yay! Not, that lasted two days then it moved again and again. It's been few weeks and it has picked a spot in the back of the tank and pops out over the top of the rocks. Not ideal but I guess it's happy. They will move around until they get the flow and light they like. I've heard of pointing a powerhead at them to get them to move. We also shaded a portion of the tank and it moved to the brighter area. So that might be an option too.

If it doesn't move and become happy go in and save it quicker than later.  Sometimes they can go in a complete shadow and just stop moving. They will need saving but not direct intense light. Keep half shaded and let them lean out into the light

In my opinion, once you put an anemone in your tank you should leave it be. They have the ability to move and will do so until they are happy, they don't care much what's in the way lol 

In my experience anemone health is more about stability than anything else. If your tank is fairly new, you should probably prepare for it to move quite a lot. You might get lucky, but in most cases new tanks are irritating for anemone's and they won't settle for a while. That doesn't mean it will die or you should remove it, just that you will have to accommodate it's moving until stability and it's spot are found. 

You can try the above mentioned options or move the entire rock that it's on but don't try and remove the foot unless it's on the glass, then it's fairly easy. Ultimately though, anemone's are kinda pain in a mixed reef, I have 5 now from splits and they tend to stick together but my tank is a few years old. Mine still move down into the rock and suck themselves closed, just generally do weird stuff. Good luck :peace: nice looking anemone.

I have probably 16 bta's right now and occasionally one will go in a cave or in the rocks, if it doesn't come out on its own after a couple days I always move them out myself so they don't die

Doesn't look bad to me. It's not bleached, mouth isn't open, and it's inflated.

I agree. It looks similar to mine and it has been anchored on my rock for several weeks. Mine is on top of my rockwork though with good lighting and moderate flow. He did move and hide out of sight for a few days though initially.
