    I'm confused... Is this a tube anemone?

    Probably a Long Tentacle anemone if I had to take a stab at it.

    From looking at pics (not from experience) tube anemones tend to not have that pedal disc. They usually just have a mouth ringed by two layers of tentacles.

    I'd say long tentacle anemone as well.

    What color is it's foot? It does look like a LTA but it also appears to be bleaching.

    I would say a LTA too. But I agree it appears to be bleached. Here is a pic of mine.
