Possibly a majano anemone. Which would be a baddie.

I'd wait for a few more opinions though.

Heya Rob,

I'm not too sure exactly what it is. Keep an eye on it for the moment, it may go walkies soon. Also watch it doesn't split or start tinging some of your other corals.

Beadlet Anemone? Where'd you get them from? I thought they needed colder waters?

interesting you say that i kept them for years in and around room temperature.

They are a sub tidal species. so being in rock pools most of the time there can handle savage temperature swings and i think this is why they do OK .The only thing i would be worried about is its not 18-22c all the time in the irish sea rock pool like the middle of dec !!! i felt bad as mine never grew !!! so i put them back in the sea.
But after that if you could get color like that in a bubble tip you would be well happy :)
