    got it when it was about 5cm in diameter.... its has more than doubled in size since and its starting to freak me out....more so since i found my cleaner shrimp, dead in its clutches this morning....

    when I got it I thought it was a harmless flower/rock anemone now im starting to think its a sebae....im both flattered that its growing and doing well since its one of the harder nems to keep, but im also freaked out for my fish.....especially since it has a lot more growing to do....

    before the BTA my clowns (especially the male) loved to nestle in it....

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    What is the color of the foot, are there any raised bumps on the foot? Yup not a rock/flower anemone.

    it has hidden its foot well so i wont be able to get a good look at it, if i recall correctly though it should be the same color as the rest of the nem.

    Nems can be difficult to identify sometimes. Hope you get a positive ID soon swiss.

    That would have been my second guess. Very possible
