    Question

    Thanx for the info guys, but I already know that anemonies sting and all of that, but the guy from the petshop told me that when the anemonies "walk around" they leave a kind of
    "slime" in their path. He said that this "slime" is harmful to the coral if in contact. Strange huh? I've seen this "slime" sometimes but I've never seen any damage on the route they take.
    I dont know the exact name of the anemonies I wanted...I dunno, common ones like the white ones with purple dots on the ends of each tentacle, or the pink ones, nothing special.

    Thanx,
    Erick

    try a tube anemone. you'll have to feed it more, but it's unlikely that it'll move as much

    No, be careful. There are potential problems.

    some anemones can kill fish and leave a bad rash, too.

    like carpet anemones.

    Jim, they are pretty safe as long as its not a huge one... I like them because they rarely move once you dig em in. They actually dont need too much light also. They will sting corals but since they Rarely ever move from their tube once established its easy to work the corals around them.

    Andenes, bottom line is: Anemones WILL sting corals so its a risk. A risk non the less but do-able with caution, planning or coral placement and just watching for any movement.
    If you decide to go with an anemone avoid the condylactus anemones, go with either a bubble tip or a rock anemone. Both I cnsider to be a great first anemone the rock anemone wil NOT host a clown, the Bubble ussually do very well.

    Good luck,
