I have this beautiful anemone in my tank and I am unsure what kind it is.It was attached to a rock when I got it,and it has grown Tremendously! It is a Long tentacle and is mostly tan colored in appearance with Pink or Rose colored tips.
Any help would be appreciated!

It's a Bubble tip. I have one just like it.

After I feed mine BTA, the tips will have a bulb like shape for a while. Most of the time is just looks like your picture.

Have you feed your anemone since you had it?

Ok,The way you worded it, I thought BTA was a certain type of food. Yes We feed ours every other day a piece of Shrimp

Try feeding it some shrimp and it may display some bulb tips after eating, Mine will. I have read on the web that BTA will not always display bulb tips.
