I would leave it be if it's happy. That anemone is much more important to me than some Indo zoas. They will continue to grow around it, just not touching it.

Nice nem! Leave it there and let the strongest survive just like in nature. Lol. Hopefully you are running carbon in case there's a full out chemical war between the two.

There won't be any chemical warfare as anemones don't use chemicals for defense...it'll sting them down if it wants to.
