    Friend of mine bought an anemone to discover his light wasnt near strong enough so i took it. When i bought it with tenticles it was bout ths size of my fist. Its now trippled in size and looks great. Can i get an ID on this and perhaps some info on if it looks healthy.

    Looks like a sabae anemone. What kind of lighting do you have it under? Best I can tell from the picture it appears to be healthy looking.

    I disagree, the tentacles look more like that of condylactis anemone. But it does still looks good.

    It could also be a condy as they are very similar. What color is the foot?

    Your lighting is sufficient. This anemone is nortorius for moving a lot so beware. They are also not a natural clownfish host. So it could host, it could kill the clown or the clown could love it to death.
