    That looks like a baby cork screw/long tentacle anemone, don't know about housing it in a nano as I believe they can grow quite big...

    It is a long tenticle anemone. I had one that was a bit bigger than that. They usually anchor themselves into the sandbed. Sadly, for some reason, mine tried to pick a fight with my mp40. It lost![​IMG]

    Yeah small Heteractis aurora by the looks of it. They usually just stick to the sand so it shouldn't be a problem.
