    it looks like it could be an aggregating anemone although i could be very wrong so please dont take my word for it, but if it is your clowns wont use it as a host, how big is it and is it possible to get another pic or two? :)

    Where did your dad get it? Locally collected? Or imported?

    Just be careful bud the rock anemones we get are a lot more aggresive than your typical bought species.
    When i started marines I used to collect that exact same species and I had numerous fish get eaten by them, as well as shrimps!
    Honestly not worth keeping... sorry:blush:
