    Here it is just after being added to the tank (it REFUSED to stay where I put it):[​IMG]

    The clerk said they thought it was a carpet anemone, but it just looked like a small brown button in the store...so I took pity on it and brought it home. It must like the new tank 'cause he perked right up and started moving. Here are a few pics after he finally picked a spot:

    It does look like a small carpet compared to the larger one at my LFS. I am not expert on these guys though so I'd check for another opinion.

    It looks just like a mojano anemone to me. They are a pest, and will spread like a wildfire.

    Well the coloring is like a green bubble tip, however the tentacles stay very rounded and sometimes are not so 'bubbly' looking. They don't seem the slim towards the end like the bubble tips seem to either. I'm not sure if it is a majono, all the pictures I have found show branching, light gray to purplish feet. My anemone has a single coral colored foot, and is not branching at all. Still not certain yet, will keep looking online and checking back here. Thanks for all the input guys :)

    I think you're right Yote. I suppose once the list of anemones it isn't gets long enough I will narrow it down, rofl.
