anemone compatibility

i have a bubble tip anemone and i wanted to put it into my bigger saltwater tank, but i was wondering if they are only compatible with clowns? i want other fish then just clowns, but i dont want them all getting stung or eaten?
any advice or anything would be of great help. i cant find anything stating different types of fish compatible with the BTA

Fish know better than to swim into an anemone. You can keep a BTA in a community tank as long as you have the lighting for it.

Only some damsels and clownfish are immune to the sting of an anemone. As Doug mentioned, all other fish know better and stay clear.
