Anemone question

Simple question, how do you place an anemone without getting stung? Do only the tentacles sting? So if the tentacles are retracted should I be ok?

I was very worried about getting stung so I used a net to get him into the tank. And then a net to get him out once I realized i couldnt stand the stress of having him in there. lol

other than that the nem will move around your tank until he finds his happy place.

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

I have a rock anemone, several maxi mini and a bubble tip. I have never really felt a sting by any of them the maxi mini are very sticky and can startle me if they clamp down on my fingers or hands when I am feeding them. I know some people have told me they feel a sting but I haven't.

What type of anemone are you thinking about getting?
