Anemone ID Help!!!

I need some help in identifying a small anemone in my tank. Image is attached. I got it a couple of months ago from a fellow reefer. It was about 1/4 the size it is now. He did not know what kind it is. I have been unable to find anything similar either on-line or in books. It has light green tentacles with pinkish tips. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It's a tulip anemone, and they are very pretty. And yes they are a pest, I've got 9 I have to nuke. If only they didn't spread so quickly. lol

Thanks everyone for your replies. Right now I've just got the one sitting on a small rock in front of the tank. As long as he doesn't start multiplying I'll hang on to him.
