anenomes are hard to deal with, I got my first one and it wouldn't stay put, the current was picking it up, then it got sucked to a powerhead. So I turned off teh power head peeled it off and kina pinned it down on a small rock, it attached and it is in power. i can move it around because of the small rock it is great, I bought a percula clown about 2 weeks ago and the anenome hosted it. by the way it was rose tipped, beutiful. just be careful

100 gal tank, 29 gal sump, 100+ pounds of liverock, asm g2 skimmer, MH+PC, auto top off
yellow tang, coral beuty, flame angel, lawnmower blenny, and a percula clown. Rose anenome hosting clown, and green moon coral, two green leather corals, 2 konchs,5 hermit crabs, and 10 snails

I've handled several anemones and never got stung. If you do as "IworkatPSP" said, and as long as it isn't stuck to anything, there shouldn't be anything to worry about.
The one I have now (bartholomea annulata) is very difficult to handle because it VERY securly attaches itself. When I bought it from the LFS, I had to buy the rock it was stuck to because the guy couldn't get it unstuck. Then after it was in the tank for a day it moved to more desirable real estate.

I agree start with the easy corals like mushrooms and leathers and maybe a colt coral is a good starter. that was my first coral. Good luck and Welcome to AA
