After a google search, it is an anemone, just a different genus of them.

Sorry for the wrong info. I just looked and they belong to an entirely different subclass of Anthozoans (based on what Wikipedia said).

If I was in your shoes, and I just was at my LFS actually, I would skip on him until your tank is more established (thinking that 2-3 weeks ago you had some sort of issue in your tank I had chimed in on). There were 2 small sebae anemone there, and I've always wanted a sebae. But I thought to this post and passed on it to role model, not because my tank is new but because it is beyond full.

Mmm... Only issues I've had was a little bit of hair algae popping up, and that's under control.. Sure it was me? Either way though, I'm not 100% set on it, just wanted some info on it since I've been looking at them for a while

I understand that. I'd like one of these guys too, just no room for it. But, if the issue feeding the hair algae is solved then you should be in the clear.

I had picked up some phycopure and used it a couple of times and it started popping up.. Never had any issues till I used it, and now that I stopped using it, the algae is going away.. Imagine that.. Haha.

Which is why I advocate minimal feeding. I have tons of different foods for things, but it usually leads to algae creeping up.
