Identify Anemone that attaches to Rock?

Hi everybody,

So I am planning on returning my corkscrew anemone because he is causing such a headache by not attaching. I know they require deep substrate and such but he just will not anchor down (I have deep substrate).

My question now is what anemone can I get that are known to attach to live rock? I want to keep an anemone just one that will be more likely to attach to my live rock rather than the substrate. Thank you!

delicate, beaded, giant carpet, haddon's carpet, hellfire, and corksrew all like to be in sand beds, but i think all the carpets and the hellfire may attach to lr if the conditions are right.

should be noted though that ritteri are about the hardest nems to keep, bubble tip is typically the easiest to keep.
