Anemone Id.

It has lots of spiky textured tentacles and it seems pretty aggressive. Its has a green mouth and its been growing really fast it also moves around. If anyone has an idea of what type of anemone it is that would be great!!

It looks kind of like Heteractis aurora (Beaded anemone). But I can't quite tell.

Yeah, I'd say it is a Phymanthus sp. I can't say if it is P. buitendijki or not, but I would agree that it is Phymanthus.
