That looks like a majano anemone. Well, it doesn't look like aiptasia so a peppermint shrimp won't be your solution. You can use aiptasia x or lemon juice.

Aiptasia x is easy to use and works every time. I highly recommend it.

It looks like aiptasia to me, however there may be other anemones that look similar. When I had my aiptasia issue I put three peppermint shrimp in my 55 gal tank and they were gone in a week. I don't think it would hurt to give it a shot. Worse case scenario you could move the shrimp to your refuge or give em back to your LFS for store credit. Just my .02.
