IMO the Bubble tip anenome`s are the hardiest. Any of them need about a 9-12 month old tank. Needs to be mature and stable. Check out the BTA.

I thought it was a very good question also. Alot of folks dont think about it and just get any old anenome. I gave you some rep points for a very good question.

I'm fairly new, and I got a condy anemone.....really cool, I like it a lot. When food passes by, it grabs it and sucks it right to its mouth!!! Awesome to watch

Anemones are not reef safe, Well they are if you have good lighting and they find a spot to stay put. But if you have a wondering anemone he'll just sting most your corals. So just be careful on that.
For a anemone, I've had a few different types. BTA's are boring i think, Only had one that was OK.
Condys are pretty cool.
But I'd go for a Carpet, Easiest anemone I've had to look after and probably the best to watch eat. If you have the money, A Blue or Red Haddoni Carpet. (But in saying this, They are the most vicious anemone out there. So there is a chance you could loose a fish if they decide to have a close look.) And if you get clowns to host it, The way they sleep in the anemone is pretty funny.
