Anemone species

I just bought this Nem the other day and my hybrid clown
even took to him. The smaller percula loves him too. I was
just wondering what kind he is so I can further research.
Seems very healthy and happy still stuck to an aquarium
filter from the LFS they had to give that to me because
he wouldn't let go.

Nice nem, I like that alot.
As for what it is, Im not sure. Its possibly a magnifica or BTA. Does its ends of tenticles puff up like bubbles?
Im quite sure it is a Magnifica, What colour is its base or foot?

anemone

It is pretty, the foot area is lavendar and I have
never seen one this color before I would love to
know what I am caring for and how much light
to have for it. It seems to turn toward the window
in the mornings and I give it about 7 hours T5 the
rest of the day.

Ritteri Anemone

This would be my guess. I am quite concerned on the color of your`s. It looks quite bleached. They need very intense lighting and are difficult to keep. Expert only rating if that is what it is. It should be a brownish tan color.

I'd almost say a condy by the color, but its way to big. Could you get some more pictures?

I agree with Danny and Mike. It's a very bleached Magnificent (ritteri) anemone.
