Hello: All the anode needs to be active is water. Bacteria often come with the water, so sealing on top is fine, but probably won’t have an effect. I wouldn’t close it off fully as thermal expansion and contraction need to be accounted for. It sounds like your heater has an aluminum anode, which likely made that slushy white gunk. Aluminum bends easily while magnesuim is stiff and somewhat springy. 😉

Yours, Larry
