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.

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.
