That does without a doubt look like an anemone...they like to be feed mysis shrimp once a week...very interesting hitch-hiker...like all anemones they can irritate the skin so be careful when feeding...i never had any problems hand feeding them but each person sensitivity is different :P

put a little bit of the mysis shrimp on the tentacles close to the mouth (the mouth is in the middle...also his mouth doubles as his butt...so if you see something coming out of his mouth after you feed him...don't worry it is just his poop...)

it looks like a bulb anemone...once you start feeding it once a week it should start gaining back some colour

I feed frozen mysis to my clowns once in a while... How do I deliver it to it so it can eat?
