RBTA Anenome

I was always interested in getting an anemone for my tank but have been turned of by the high mortality rate and scared they will sting/kill my corals. I've been seeing these RBTA's for really cheap locally and at work they just placed a large 8" on in a reef tank. It crawled around and eventually settled but it didn't seem to damage any of the corals. Does an anemone sting corals by accident when they crawl around or do they actually have to "purposely" have to sting something? My work also had a 8" in real nice looking green carpet for $60.

BTW, I"m not ready to get one yet but would like to start researching again if there's any chance I can successfully have one in my tank.

When you're ready to get an anemone, please consider a tank raised specimen. That way you won't be contributing to their collection from the ocean. I don't mean to advertise but here's a site that has some for less than $40.
