Was it a bad idea getting a Condy anemone?

Was it a bad idea getting a Condy anemone? I have a 50 gallon tank and I don't know what I was thinking. I want to have corals too. Is it possible to have both?

How long did he live? I'm hearing if they are not happy they can sting everything in your tank.

I think the concern is the Anenome dieing and releasing a toxin in the water killing fish! My first lasted a day before floating into a powerhead

I'll keep a eye out on mine. I have had him for 1 week. He seems happy. I have fed him a couple times with a piece of shrimp. He hangs out in the rocks. He has gotten very close to my kenya tree. I don't think he stung it, it's still alive.

Is the Xenia doing ok. Do you have corals in your tank?

Xenia doesn't show any damage from the nem, also it grows so fast it's not a problem anyway!
