Anemone or Coral

Picked this little frag up from my LFS. Seems to be doing really well but, I have no idea what he is or how to care for it
Anyone recognize it?
Thanx

The stalk looks like an anemones' but the "top" looks like a soft coral....Does the coral's stalk retract much if it is disturbed? (Hopefully someone else will be able to identify it exactly..)

It does not retract at all when I bother it. It actually grabbed hold of the plastic pippet 8O I had to pull a bit and then wait for it to release.
Don't think its the spaghetti coral, nice though, I like it.
I can take a pic of the big one that my fish store has. May help!
Thanx

Agreed, looks much like Actinodendron plumosum, a branching sea anemone.

Cheers

I have seen the same 5 times larger in size than my frag. Although your link to the branching Anemone is close looking the larger of the specimens looks completely different!
I'll take a pic of the big one at the LFS today!
