I'm not seeing tons of anemones in that tank. Or did you mean mushrooms? I definitely see tons of those!

i would use gloves whenever possible. not so much so you don't get stung, but so you don't harm the coral. we pick up lots of things on our hands in a day, and even soap isn't the best thing to be touching to the surface of a coral.
i had a large sps colony that i grew from a tiny frag that i touched one day, just to snip a tiny piece off (which i've done many times before), and the next day it was completely dead.
i believe this was from something that was present on my hands. i never removed it from the water.

No there all small anemones. I bet there are close to 20 in there. Not aiptaisia either. He gave me a couple. And now one of the stupid things are on the glass but before that he sat in the same spot for over a month.

you most likely need stronger lighting to sustain those creatures.

How long have you had the tank? Is everything brand new? If so your going to need to let it Cycle first. Definitely look into better lights. Some T5 bulbs would work great since you have a smaller tank.
