Phymanthus Buitendijki ??????

On second thought, I don't think that's what it is. Really not sure what this is. Do you know where it was collected?

I really think they are beautiful they look great in my tank . I was kind of worried that they would not do good in my tank because it is warm tank but they look like they are doing great .

You collected them in the ocean out of Orange County? Not sure if that's what you mean to say. If they are from the California coast they (probably) won't last long in your tank.

That made it a lot easier. It's an Anthopleura, perhaps Starburst anemone, Anthopleura sola.
