From live aquaria.com:
"The Haitian Reef Anemone requires strong light and should never be purchased if a good lighting system is not in place. It will do well in an aquarium with live rock and several crustaceans. Although an Anemone requires a reef environment, it is not the best suited for the reef aquarium. The Haitian Reef Anemone moves around the tank and has a sting that can inflict grave damage to other anemones and corals. Do not include its natural predators such as the Red-Leg Hermit Crab. Unlike other anemones, the Haitian Reef Anemone does not have a relationship with any particular fish, and it is rare for any type of clownfish or damsel to reside within them.
The diet should include feedings of fish, mussels, shrimp, or other foods of this type."

Now, this does not answer your question, but it is good information. What this site does not tell you is that anemones are extremely difficult to keep in captivity and rarely live. We should stop purchasing anemones, which would cause the LFS to stop ordering anemones. These creatures are far to delicate for you or I to attempt to keep, as you are experiencing first hand.
