It looks like what people call a rock flower anemone. If that is the same type of anemone, then many people keep them.
That is what I have been trying to figure out! Some things I read say they are some say they are different...I dont care either way, I just love her! ♡

Looks like a variety of Actinodendron plumosum, they pack an extremely potent sting.

I don't believe it is the Hell's Fire Anemone. The column of the Hell's Fire Anemone has no spots or stripes. The tentacles are also far more "fluffy" for lack of a better word.

Well quite honestly I never knew they existed until I read your post. They are quite beautiful, but I have also seen other members on this forum with similar looking anemones. It might just be a labeling dilemma.

The only clowns I have that'll host are dirt cheap skunk clowns. Can't get them out of the anemones except at feeding time. Will my classic ocellaris clowns host a nem? Nope. If I have to answer one more little kid's question as to why the Nemo fish don't live in an anemone, I'm going to drown a little kid. Will the expensive designer clowns I got for my daughter host a nem? Nope. But they host the power cord for the nero powerhead just fine.
