Maybe a torch coral?

My guess is either an anemone, a torch, or a plate coral. Need a better picture to tell for sure.

A better pic would help, and I see why a riterri/mag was suggested for the color of tips, but I've seen a number of BTA's that had this too.

Really tents are not best to ID, but rather foot/base.

Petco had it labeled as a long tip. Iím pretty sure itís not a bta. Here are some shots of my 17 year old red tipped and my 14 year old rainbow tipped.

LTA is very easy to ID based on the red foot and spotted veracue, but I'm also pretty sure this is BTA

Is it attached to anything? The first couple pics in the thread look like it was trying to dig, although your sand seems rather coarse.

Bta tentacles can vary,
your display btas are beautiful
If it attaches to rock then bta if it doesnít then itís still unknown because it could have a damaged foot etc

If it were an LTA, even bleached heavily there is still usually noticeable red at the foot, it's pretty easy to ID from foot and base.

Personally I would leave it alone, let it go where it wants, don't risk injuring foot, let it settle on it's own.

He mentions that the anemone has verrucae, which would indicate not bta. And mostly going from the nem's posture appearing closer to a stressed lta.

Lta's will in some cases attach to rocks, typically due to low lighting conditions, and not all lta's have a red base. I had a green with cream/tan base several years ago.
