bta with ick?

Can an anemone get ick like fish can? i bought a bta a week ago and when i got it into the tank i noticed two of the tentacles had some white spots on them. they aren't bumps and they havnt spread. Alot of the tanks in the fish store seemed to be having a problem with ick, and i wastn sure if it was possible for an anemone to catch the disease.

Inverts do not get ich. However ich can be introduced to your tank by hitch hiking if the invert was in a tank that had ich.
