Moving multiple anemones

Hello all,

I have over 20 anemones that I will be moving to my new tank. What would be the best way to make them start moving from the rock? I do not want to use the rock that they are now because I build them new NSA structure in new tank.

Thank you

where they are now:

and where they are going. The island in the right

Just point a focused power head at the base. Like a maxi jet and wait. Ice cubes can work if you want a quicker means of removal

Assuming they love light, I'd just move the old rock to the corners of the new tank. They will leave on their own.

Some btas don't like bright lights and move away down into crevices. The same general idea works, put old rock on the top of the new, and the news will move down and off.
