I have those in my overflow box and never knew they are that dangerous. How big is that anemone to kill a wrasse? Most of the ones i have seen in my tank are like 1/3" tops.

Ball anemones are harmless. Any pics of the nem ? Also healthy fish will not get eaten/stung by anemone unless the are already sick and drying

If you must destroy, smother with kalkwasser powder mixed into a thin paste. To remove and save, tickle its underneath (foot) with a toothbrush

They are from Fl, like condys, but you can’t collect them anymore

not the kind you are talking about
A picture would be helpful. Not sure what anemone you’re talking about and If you already go it out if the tank you can just toss it
