In the wild certain fish like damsels and bangaii cardinals have been recorded living in or near anemones.

Damsels and clowns are very closely related. Never seen a cardinal in an anemone however.

A new curious hermit crab was climbing rocks and bumped into my anemone and the anemone started latching on - I gently pulled the hermit crab away and all was well.
Would an anemone be able to pull out a hermit from its shell?
I have a condy anemone and one of my fish was stung once and then it never went close to it again.

Hi Ella. I don't know if an anemone would be successful in yanking the hermit out of its shell but I'm sure it would at least try.

I was at a LFS last night and they have a 500g reef.. This anemone was at least 14" around and was laying next to 4 different corals and over lapping each other like they were friends... I thought anemones will fight with anything near it?? I've been wanting one. But don't want it to kill everything....

If the sting doesn't kill the coral, It surely will stunt it's growth.
If your tank is ideal, it may never move and you will not have a problem, but I'm sure you've seen more than one thread where the OP's anemone moved around a bit. I keep anemones. I like them. I have 4 in the DT, and 5 in my back tanks. I don't see any trouble out of them.

I like anemones.. Never had them before. But I'm setting up a 55g in my basement solely for rose bta's. LFS said they grow at a very rapid rate and split very often. I could make my money back fast.. And he sells them for 60$..

Go for it. Btas are very hardy. They don't split too often in a tank by themselves. But you can propagate them by cutting them in half. Tons of you tube videos out there on how to do this.
