    Hey guys

    Is anyone able to ID this anemone? Excuse the spelling in the title, not sure how to change it.

    Thanks

    Could be some kind of rock flower anemone but I'm not sure. Very pretty though!

    Looks like a local Plum / Beadlet Anemone, Actinia equina

    I also thought it was a beadlet anemone, I have heard they are quite aggressive. It crawled out of some live rock I got from a friend so I am assuming off the Durban coast.

    Does anyone keep these or are they bad news? It's in my quarantine tank now. Maybe just leave it there:)

    I have three in my refugium. I feed them small pieces of clam now and again. Otherwise they live on mysis shrimp breeding in the refugium. I have never kept them with other livestock,so can't comment on aggressiveness.
