Just a little clarification on this cause you're talking about two different anemone types.

Pacific host anemones are rarely found in extremely shallow flats, they will be happiest in deeper more constant temp waters.
Atlantic condy's are commonly found in grass flats where the temps can range from the 50's in winter, to above 90 in the summer.

Where most people get into trouble with high temps in their tanks is not the animals per se but the fact that it's ramped the metabolism of the entire system up - higher temps / higher metabolism of the entire system. As the demand for more food and oxygen goes up with the higher temps, the ability of the system to process waste and provide oxygen and off-gas CO2 goes down.
