Good neighbor for rose bulb anemone

I have a rose bulb anemone for my 2 percula clown fish (they never use it) and was wondering if there are good options that I can put next to it that will not have issues with getting stung. Its base is consistent but it does shift around a bit during the day. Right now I am just giving it plenty of space but I do not like all of the exposed rock surrounding it.

Sounds like you have a good neighbor, rock. Not all the rock in our tank needs to be covered in stuff. It will more than likely sting anything you add next to it, and be stung by many things you add next to it. It should grow bigger to fill the space, and split and fill the space with clones.

The sting is strong so at least 6-8 inches of space fully inflated between tank mates.
Wait till he stops moving for at leas a month before adding....

For some reason my Heliopora doesn't seem to get stung by anything although I've never seen that mentioned anywhere.

I have lots of RBTA's and some are on or next to some sps corals and I have some green star polyps that are right up along side a rock with 10+ RBTA's on it.
