    I guess the next question is how old is your setup, and what lighting do you have?

    the starter anemone is a BTA, they have the least critical requirements.

    yes BTA is a bubble tip anemone.

    any anemone can have a negative effect on your corals and fish but with the proper care and methods the risk can be greatly reduced.

    I heard that they will move around, how can I reduce the risk?

    keep them fed, mine rarely move and if they do it's usually just a little closer to one of their brothers / sisters.

    Thanks, so my next question is, what if you on vacation? um... if I travel a lot, I don't think that is a good idea to have them... so sad.

    Well then it might not be a good idea to have a tank altogether. Unless you have a fairly good setup with an automatic top off, controllers, and someone with some good understanding just to look at it while you're gone to make sure something chaotic doesn't happen.
