Condy Anemone

Yesterday I bought a Condy Anemone & I was asking questions about but the guy at my LFS really didn't tell me much about he knows everything in my tank since I have bought everything from him anyways he said it will be just fine in my tank... But after doing some research I found out it can harm my fish ... Any advice ? Should I take it back? Any advice would be a great help please & thank you !

Not sure if it can harm your fish, it is more harmful to corals and other anemones tho. It is not likely to host any clowns if you have them tho so if that was your plan...

Do have a clown fish but really didn't plan on it hosting the anemone, the anemone is actually my first piece of coral in my tank I do plan on adding more but if it could harm other corals would it be a good decision to bring it back?

If it was me I would probably go for a BTA especially if its your first. I was glad to have added a nem before corals tho as it found its home and stayed there. Adding nems later can be tricky as they can roam when first introduced, stinging corals. It's a beautiful nem tho! Pics?

I have a purple tip condy too but not sure what clown should I get to host it. Mine stayed on the same spot where i put it the very first time in my tank. I have learned that anemone is a good indicator of your water parameter cause it reacts instantaneously.

Condys aren't known to be hosted by clownfish. It is quite rare. Bubble tips are much more common partners.

Looks like a long tentacle to me. Condys have a orange-ish foot.
