    Possibly an H. magnifica. Do try to get us a better picture when you can, specifically of the mouth and column.

    I think you right anemone. Been looking at pics of the H. magnifica and they are very similar if not identical. He seems to like to move alot cause he's moved to another spot in the tank already after just one day.

    It is looking for a suitable place. If it continues please post your equipment list and water parameters.

    DEFINITELY a heteractis magnifica. I would suggest trying to prop this anemone on a "pedestal" type rock, which is not touching any other rocks on the sides. And also direct the water flow, that the power-heads cause a "cross-flow" and that the magnifica is "caught" in the centre of the "cross-flow"....

    Also - what lighting do you have? Magnifica's require the highest lighting of the anemone's..... Also - ensure that you feed the nemmie at least once a week - small pieces of meaty foods.... ie. small (smaller than 1cm squared) pieces of mussel meat, raw hake fillet, lance fish, pink shrimp, etc.....
