The German name "Armed Anemone" comes from the launchable nematocysts of the sea anemone, which can easily penetrate human skin and which results in fierce and strong burning pain for months, so caution in dealing with these animals! These animals live in sandy or muddy bottoms in the sunlight zone of the sea. Dofleina armata is not a symbiosis anemone; it needs regular fresh food in the form of small fish, invertebrates, zooplankton and detritus, and carrion, because it has no zooxanthellae. More information can also be found in Mergus Seawater Atlas Volume 4, page 288 and Volume 5, page 301.

It sounds like something you might want to be very careful with.

I don't know if I'd trust it in my tank since I have smaller fish ATM.
