    it is soft and slimey, looks like it has an opening at the top with polyps on the edges and it adheres to things on the opposite side/base. Was not in my tanks, someone was collapsing theirs and we found it amongst everything. I want to find out cause it looks coplex and those are always the interesting ones. Will try for a better photo now.

    It extended itself in the bukkie I had it in today. You clearly see the tentacles on the one end and the rounded, sort of adhesive side.

    Definitely an anemone! Where did you get this, Neil? BTW: It LOOKS like a LTA (Long tentacle anemone - radianthus - BUT, I can be wrong).....

    Someone was breaking down their tank and it was just there. I am busy upgrading my lights and my tank has been running for about 7 months. Should I put it on a rock under some good lighting? Neil

    If it is the species I suspect, the see through arms would indicate that it does not rely on zooxanthellae for energy, but rather on food. No need for strong lighting.

    Was thinking maybe also Bartholomea annulata? Looks very similar from the top.
