Hi everyone , just wondering if anyone has experience with tube anemones ? Are they suitable for a mixed reef and what are the pros and cons?

think of them like sun corals, small consistant feeding is needed, get one with a good, well developed tube.

Thanks , yeah i think the one I was looking at was quite large  it's tube was around 4/5" long and a girth of around 3/4" to an 1", and purple tentacles around 8"  long . How are they in the reef , I'd think it would need to be far enough away from anything it could sting , corals etc ?
