No, what she is referring to is "seeding" the base rock with bacteria, algae, and inverts. Basically, this just means that you are introducing the above listed organisms. If you wish to get an idea of what you may get as hitch hikers on your rock, click the link in my signature.

There should be a "read more" button below the description that goes into the removal methods. By anemone, are you after aiptasia? Personally, I had the best luck by taking pickling lime and mixing it with a little water to make a thick paste. I then smothered the aiptasia with the thick paste. few days later all you need to do is crush the shell on the paste and suck it out with a syringe or baster. Don't treat a lot a once though, or you'll have problems with pH fluctuations.
