Anemone specific predators

So I know there are a lot of fish that are not reef safe, but I am thinking about getting rid of coral completely and just keeping my blue gig as a centerpiece. If I do, is there any cool fish I could keep that wouldnt messwith it or harm it?its pretty big. Iíd say every bit of 2 feet if it stretched out. So obviously donít want to chance it. I was wondering about puffersor triggers.

Anemones are eaten by sea turtles, sea slugs, certain starfishes, eels, flounders, and codfish.
Puffers and triggers are more after rather meaty things with hard shells.
Certain butterflies may nip on anemones but that can be pretty effectively prevented by adding a pair of clownfish.
Otherwise, I don't think that the fish that might outright eat anemones are likely to make it into the trade.
