It's never happened to me. Fish aren't stupid, they will not purposely go into one unless it is a clown fish. And it's not like the anemone moves around trying to hunt a fish down either. I wouldn't worry about it at all.

im just worried im going to get a beautiful tang and the anemone will get it... ive seen a few videos where a tang or other smaller fish has gotten eaten by the anemone

If they get spooked by something there is always a possibility that they swim into it by accident, but I really think the odds of that happening are slim.

I think the odds of it killing corals is way higher then fish.

+1.... I learnt that the hard way.... It was re-homed after it refused to stay where I told it to stay...Why won't they ever listen. :lol:

I think you will find that only a real sick or {dumb} fish would ever get nailed by a nem. Had lots and never lost a healthy fish, lost one but it was very sick and that was a few years ago.

Haddoni carpet anemones are known to eat fish, but most of the other anemones do not. It does happen, but not very often. I have kept BTA's, RBTA's, Sebae's, and long tentacle anemones and never lost a fish due to an anemone.
