Identification?

Could anyone tell me what kind of anemone this is? I got it today on some live rock and would like to know. TIA

Can you try for a clearer pic.

To me it resembles a Small BTA or a large Mojano.

Aiptasia in my opinion.

I'd wait for other opinions before doing anything though.

Well now I'm confused, . I can touch one of my condy's and it might shrink up a little, not much mind you just like "hey don't touch". I touch one of these things and they don't shrink up at all, they retract into the rock with lightening speed. I don't think they are anemone's. Maybe big feather dusters?

That cinches it. They are definately Aiptasia.

To confirm: Place a small piece of fish or other meaty food on one. A featherduster will ignore it, an Aiptasia will consume it.
