No they are not. Anemones are in the same class/subclass as coral which is hexacorallia but in a completely different family. The nem will sting and kill the mushrooms.

The nem will go walkabout anyway if its not happy where you place it ! Mine decided to settle right in the middle of my red people eaters and its stinging the hell out of them but that's where it's happy it's even split and now I have two healthy bta,s ! Not so happy people eaters though lol
