anemone with coral

Will adding an anemone to my tank limit my coral choices?

It won't limit what you can get, but you do have to keep an eye on the nem. If it starts moving around you have to clear a path for it because it'll sting everything it touches. Once it gets settled in a spot it likes it should remain there for a while, but even then still keep an eye out.

Do you want it to host or look pretty?

Host would be a seabae anemone or a bubble tip.

A pretty anemone is a maxi mini anemone they are easy to take care of and don't move around like most others.

Carpet anemones get to big for most tanks.

Remember most anemones come from the wild and the fish they had in the wild will most likely die so choose carefully. Make sure your tank is stable, power heads covered, proper lighting and the tank is well established.

A friend of mine had one that ended up in a power head so yes they do move. They aren't the easiest to take care of and if you decide to get one make sure it isn't dyed. My LFS is very good about letting me know those types of things without me even asking.
