Anemones

This very sticky Anemone was brought home in my luggage from a trip to Long Island Aquarium.  They had a tank full of these beauties, which are typically a cold water anemone that had somehow acclimated to our tropical waters.  It may look like a red aiptasia, but it is quite large and VERY sticky.  There's no doubt it could eat a fish if the opportunity occured. I've had it in my frag tank for the past two years, and it did split into two in that time.  I feed them a few times a week with some mini-mysis while feeding the suncorals.
