    Your focus is on the rock not the anemone, so it's hard to see. But from what I can tell what you have has got long tentacles. Looks like aptasia to me. These anemones in *this* thread are short tentacle.

    I don't think it's a tube anemone. Tube anemones usually have very long, slender tentacles. I also don't think it's an aptasia. Honestly, it looks like a very small LTA. Look closely at the "trunk" and under the "crown" for small bumps. If so, it might be an LTA.
