Inwall, I must say you have the most enlightening and meaningful comments as they are well thought out and backed by actual experience. We are walking a fine line with many people. Many hobbyists may judge their success in this hobby overall by their ability to keep harder to maintain animals, such as anemones. Thus, you get comments that seem to be going against the grain. However, overall, I must agree with Inwall. My experience speaking to my lfs and seeing dozens of ASAP threads involving anemones has led me to believe that anemones are not well suited for life in the home aquarium. I congratulate those who have researched and done everything in their ability to create a suitable home for them. But as the facts indicate, even if you keep it alive for 5 or 10 years, that's a small percentage of their lifespan in the wild. I also feel compelled to comment on the "right" and "entitlement" comments previously. IMO, again, in my opinion, we are entitled to nothing. A basic example. If we were entitled to food, why am I paying for it? Why doesn't somebody show up at my front door with a large cheese steak and give me what I am entitled to? If your entitled to something, you have an inherent link to that, a vested right that would allow you to obtain the object or privilege no matter what. It would also create a legal remedy, a cause of action that would allow you to take legal action to claim what you are entitled to. I realize this comment isn't perfect, but hopefully you will see my point. So, we are not entitled to an anemone nor entitled many other things we generally take for granted.
