Is there a problem here?

Hey ppl I got a anemone 3days ago because my clowns hosted a torch coral and been told that the clowns can kill the torch coral. I got a anemone now but I've been told its a bubble tip anemone by my lfs. A day after I got it I was watching a YouTube clip about anemone and been advised not to get any white anemone because it mean there ill. Is that tru??

Just feed your tank, the clowns will take care of it.

The anemone will get the vast majority of its nutrition from the zooxanthellae in its tissue. It will aslo get some from the clowns feces and may capture some zooplankton.

The two biggest miss steps with anemones seem to be insufficient light and / or people trying to get them to eat too much solid food based on what I've read.
