RBTA an coral question

Had a RBTA in my 14 gal biocube. It split yesterday and I wanted to move one to my 75 gal. I have a decent amount of corals in there. How bad could the anemone hurt them before it finds a spot?

Depending on the anemone it might wipe out a good amount or it might settle in to a place right away.

The anemone stings and that is what will cause damage to the corals. I have to move one of my candy canes today because on rbta doesn't want anything in that corner for some reason. Once I move any coral from that area the rbta doesn't try to reach over to it. I don't know how it knows it is there but it seems to.

The RTBA likes high light! Just try putting him near the top and watch the tank today- if it looks like he's gonna move just rearrange the corals a little. If they aren't glued down you could always lower them for a day to accommodate
