Then it could be that he is trying to get used to the anemone sting so he can live in the anemone. Is he causing any damages to the lta? If so, be cautious of major damage to the anemone since they are very delicate. Separation is needed sometimes if that happens.

Gosh. That anemone is so bleached. What light is it under?

Usually damaged tentacles can grow back if right environment is provided. But this anemone is very bleached, it needs special care.

Yeah that anemone has bigger problems than getting nipped. Kind of looks like a BTA.

Separate that maroon. It's doing more harm then good by harassing it like that. It's not an lta, it's a bta, which brings me to the question, is it on sand? Btas like being on rock with their foot buried in a hole or crevice. Yes, the nubs can grow back, but you're going to have to feed it. A Tiny piece of shrimp, like pencil eraser size every 3 days will help.

Why does that look like a fresh water tank that you are trying to hide... slate rocks, plastic plants??

Was it a fresh water tank? Did you ever use copper? Anenomes are invertabrates and they dont like copper
