Can you go through your throught process with water changes and adding an anemone? I am not sure exactly why you are concerned at this point, but there could be a valid reason.

My bta's are thriving in 50+ ppm nitrates. Go through your normal process of acclimation, turn lights down a bit and place the new nem in a location you like. If you give them a hole to sink its foot into and some overhang to feel secure, there's a better chance of it staying put.
