Anemone vs Coral

I am in the process of getting everything together for an primarily anemone tank. From doing research and experiences that BTAs pretty much will kill off everything it comes in contact with.

What reef weed could be used to for fill in the empty spaces on the rockwork, just looking for fill to cove the rockwork?

All of the above would work...

7 reef tanks, 5 freshwater tanks, 2 terrariums, 2 dogs, 3 boys, and 1 very understanding wife!

Current Tank Info: Marine: Pair of 40B's, 45W, 50g cube, ADA 45F at home...IM Nuvo 20 and 10 at office!

I'd look for something with a color that will make whatever nems you put in there pop.

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it into a fruit salad.
Philosophy is wondering if that means ketchup is a smoothie.

Current tank info: 45g SCA Cube

Agree with the above. If you get rbta, then do gsp. Something like that

Thanks for all the feedback, just trying to visualize something that’s appealing to the eye but not overdone, too much of one thing, plus not getting upset from the anemones moving or getting larger killing everting it come in contact with.

Zoas would be great but they are on the small side and hate to have them wiped out because of the Nems and they would probably be overrun by the other reef weeds

You could fill it with dragons breath or red gracalaria algea if your not going to have
any fish that will eat it.
