    Those arent majanos.
    I'm not sure those are anemones.But there not torch corals either.Like Brat pointed out though,they are purty.

    That's weird. I've never seen an anemone with a calcium based tube like those have. What makes you believe it's an anemone in the first place? My first guess would be a type of coral, since it has a calcareous skeleton.

    Edit: Unless the tubes are fleshy, and not calcareous at all. I can't tell from the picture. Have you touched them? Are they soft and squishy? Or are they hard?

    I agree with the majone. They look exactly the same. Some are prettier than others.
