Did I buy a mini carpet or just a small haddoni

It is about 1.5-2" when opened just checking. Thanks in advance.

It looks like a Bali blood red anemone, which is S. tapetum though personally I think it should be its own species because it doesn’t look exactly like the typical mini maxi anemone. The bright green mouth helps to ID these. They are fairly common now, and grow only a few inches. I have seen them sold as baby haddoni, but they are definitely not that, and any dealer selling them as such should be avoided.

Thanks. Either way I got it for a cheap price even if it’s a mini carpet compared to what I’ve seen on the internet.
