    Does anybody have any experience of an anemone killing a Trochus snail?
    I have a rose BTA and this morning found a Trochus lying on it's side next to the anemone.
    It's possible that the snail crawled over the live rock and came into contact with the anemone but would this be enough to kill it?

    This is possible, but it's also possible that something elsegot the snail. Hermit crabs and other crabs often go after snails.
