    Just wondering what the exact type of long tentacled anemone I have..... It's a happy one that has a great farmer living in it and eats scallps like crazy.

    Looks like a macrodactyla doreensis - long tentacle anemone.
    I hope your tank has been running longer than the 1 week experience you show in your signature. What kind of lighting do you have?

    If your tanks is less than a year old, i would return the anemone before it kills everything in your tank when it dies.
