Do anemones can harm coral?

Hi,
I have a small problem with a finger leather coral here. I had this coral for the last 2 years and never had a problem with.
Since last weekend, it started to lose branches and look terrible. I have done nothing special before and all other corals are doing just great.

Right now, the only change I can see is a rose anemone that moved a little after a water change and it's now right beside the the coral so the can touch each other all the time.

Could that be a cause of my problems?

It very well could. Anenomes can sting other corals. I`m not positive that`s the case here though. Try moving the leather to be sure. If it`s looking too bad you might have to frag it to save it.

Hi!
it's difficult to move them because they are on the same rock right now. I never managed to find a way to make an anemone move.

Other than that, my light could be in cause. That's an old one and I am waiting for a replacement bulb next week. If the light is in cause, I don't see why all other corals (including the other finger leather) would do so well.

I'll see what I can do

thanks
