Anemone in an aggressive tank?

Can an anemone be added to an aggressive tank? or will the fish eat it or bite at it? Lol

I am so not an expert when it comes to nems.

Thanks!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

It would depend on the fish. Lion fish are aggressive but wouldn't bother an anemone, for example.

How about a Valentini or Porcupine Puffer? Are there many fish that will bother a nem?

I currently have in the tank:
coral hogfish
red coris wrasse
sixline wrasse
blueheaded wrasse
lunar wrasse
flame hawk
a single clown
engineer goby
and a blue eyed tang

Would those guys go after a nem? And what about a harlequin tusk? i am thinking of getting one of those as well.

The tusk would prob be ok. I'm not so sure about the coral hogfish...they tear reefs up from what I heard. The tusk is only after snails and crabs.

if the fish will nip a clam it will nip the nem just as much easiest way to answer

aww too bad. I know the red coris turns into a menace when he gets big and the tusk I was concerned with as well. Guess I'll leave the nems to the reef tanks. lol

Thanks for the input
