Anemone ID please

My LFS said it was a young green bubbletip, It has a pure white foot and the top is a beige color with glowing tips.

Would need a better photo really. A close-up but by your discription, it could be a bubbletip.

It almost looks like a ricordea mushroom. Or it could just be really stressed and need some time to expand.

its been in the tank for 2 months and I believe its fully expanded. It did just taken in a piece of fish to eat. And it recently relocated from the other side of the tank.its about 3 inches across and about 2 1/2 inches tall and its foot is about 1 radius and its tentacles are only 1/2 inch at most...

If that's what it looks like when it's completely expanded, could it be a carpet anemone? Certainly doesn't look like most BTA's that I've seen.

You've sufficiently stumped me. If it is in that photo, fully expanded, I'm gonna agree I don't think it's a bta. It could be a sebae species. I'm sorry I can't help you more.

Those pics are better and I'm thinking tripper may be right in his suggestion of a carpet anemone. I can't be positive though.

I thought that too originally but the mouth doesn't look right for a mushroom/ricordia to me.

The pattern of bubbles look too irregular to be a carpet, but the mouth doesnt look like ricordia at all. I would guess some type of carpet however.

That is definatly some sort of anemone. Probably a carpet, maybe a bubble tip.
