Help to identify Anemone

The LFS said this is a pacific anemone but that doesn't seem to help much. Any help would be appreciated. I'm new, hope this posts correctly.

Thanks! So there really isn't a specific name for this coloration? My links aren't opening on my computer so I don't know if you can enlarge the picture and see it clearly, Can you? Thanks for the help, maybe I'll post my urchant too, I can't seem to find a picture of him on the web anywhere.

Yes the pic opens up to a larger image, anemones are not necessarily named for their coloration as the same species can be found in many different colors determined by environment.
