Anemone question

Can you have Blood red fire shrimp and also a bulb anemone in the same tank, or is the anemone going to eat the shrimp?

I do not believe it would be a problem, but I should point out, IMO, anemones should not be attempted by novice aquarists and should not be placed in aquariums less than 1 yr old. Anemones are virtually immortal in the wild, but have a terrible track record in the aquarium.

Can you explain why you think this? What is it makes keeping an anemone so difficult?

There really is no good explanation except that people obviously dont know exactly what anemones need. Even expert aquarists will tell you that they have trouble keeping them alive over a long period of time.
