Non non-photosynthetic anemone

Does anyone have any experience with any of these types of anemones? Obviously I am not referring to aiptasia but ones like the purple tube anemones and such.. All I ever see people talking about is bubble tips and carpets.. is there a reason they aren't popular?

Typically, nom-photosynthetic things are just harder to keep. There is a common belief that tube anemone are 'fish killers', even though there isn't any information out there truly stating such. How I see it, is that someone had one and either wasn't feeding it at all, had a sick/dying fish that got blown into it, or both. Similar to a cleaner shrimp being blamed for the death of a family favorite fish, though it is only doing its job.
