The ones on the left are definately zoanthids. The right one is an anmeone but I am unsure of the species. The tentacles seem too dense for majano. Any chance of a pic showing the oral disc?

Cheers
Steve

You already did in the second post. The oral disc is the topside of the anemone where the mouth is...

Cheers

The tips do not need to be inflated at all times to be a BTA. At this size they can be hard to ID but I am fairly sure that is what this anemone is. It is not a ricordia.

Here is a reference that shows what I mean.

I agree it looks like a small rose bta, it does not have quite the right body shape for a majano as well as the density of tentacles.

I agree as well. If this was a hitchhiker that is for sure one awesome hitchhiker.. Usually the Rose BTA range form about 150.00 to 200.00 so if it was free that sweet deal..

If you dont want it I will take it lol
