Looks like a rock flower anemone. Like any other anemone, they are carnivores and will eat whatever it can grab.

These guys can shure eat. I feed them a cube of raw fish every third day and they still snatched up my shrimp. They have doubled in size since I got them two weeks ago.

I think I found out what it is. I think its a Florida Rock flower anemone. They look exactly like mine.

I now have 6 of them. the ebay store I bought them from sent me two more boxes with 2 more in each. Even though they look pertty, I dont want to have a death valley in my tank. My tank is only 36 gal and I want to start incorporating corals so Im gonna get rid of the other 4 localy.

Thanks for the comments I apreciate your help

the first look like warty nems, usually flower/rock nems have shorter tentacles. they are pretty variable with color.
