I'd go with Heteractis aurora. Or Malu

That is a H. aurora. You can get these "zebra anemones" from Petco for fairly inexpensive.

Yep, aurora, beaded, squirt mysis towards it a couple times a week to help regain health and color

Thanks to all... Would have to get it back to health, as the LFS from where I bought it told me they haven't fed it for a couple of months now... So when I gave it shrimp, it gulped it down within a matter of few minutes... Here in india (from where I belong) it is called carrot anemone... ( I think because of its orange foot...) Thanks all once again...

Feeding is not a big deal or even needed if you have good lighting, but when they are white, they are lacking the zooxanthellae that helps them process light into usable energy, so that is the only time I encourage it, and smaller foods like mysis are easier for them to digest, less stress, probably best for regaining health and color.
