Is this Aiptasia?

Recommended Posts

Hi, had one of these before and my hermit butchered it, this one I have managed to QT.

 

Apologies for the pic, still learning the macro lens I got today.

 

The tentacles retract to absorb reef roids and the entire structure can retract when poked (with tweezers this time 👍)

 

I think @SeaFurn said it could be a baby anemone? They look fairly similar to me
