And a different shape! lol Not really steve, it doesn't have the 'folds?' on the tentacles like that one. It's tentacles are smooth but slightly stripey. It does look remarkably like a flower so maybe Tim is right, I think I will keep him and see how it goes. I don't have a huge amount of live rock in my tank so it should be easy to eradicate if he starts to multiply, also I can't keep a 'real' anemone in my tank so I am quite pleased with my little hitchhiker. Thanks everyone!

thers a few different products to kill these.. best if you have a fish only tank look into getting a racoon butterfly... they wont stand a chance... the other thing and is the cheepest.. is PH down for pools... you dont need a lot... the ph dower will come in white little balls... about the size of sand from the beech or a sand box at a park... you have ot be carfully and watch your ph when doing this...just take 2 of the little balls and with your other hand take the rock and set it right on the anemone...it will bubble and fise. if you have more time the best is to fill a 5 gallon bucket and take the rock out and do it over the bucket.. then take a glass and pour water from your tank over the spot were you put it on... make sure you dont put the rock in the water of the bucket due to the ph being so low... the otehr produts you have to enject the anemones wit ha need is the only products we have at the store to kill themm not to sure if there is others... someone else will have to say .... but from what it looks like you dont want them in your tank at all!!!!! hope this help you

I don't think I want to kill him, in fact I fed him some mysis last night and he really loved it! He practically doubled in size and his tentacles really expanded. I have asked around and done some research and I am pretty sure he is some kind of flower anemone so he shouldn't cause too much trouble. Thanks anyways!
