I like bubble tip anemones. They are pretty sharp looking and generally don't eat fish, like maybe a carpet could/would.
Live aquaria gives a guarantee-

It says so on the link. Plus, they get as big as trash can lids.

They do not do well getting shipped and look pretty bad by the time they reach the sellers' tank. Once established in any tank, they will be fine as long as you keep your water stable. Carpets are known fish eaters. Few other problems can also arise during introductory phase.

There are also many types of carpet anemones.

I've had a bubble tip (now deceased after a long losing battle of recovery from being caught in a power head) and I have a long tentacle now. My occ clowns hosted the dying nem for a week before it died, won't even look at the long tentacle, but have hosted a rock and now are hosting my large pagoda cup coral. Lol. But I do agree bubble tips are the "cutest". Good luck!
