Looks like it is probably a really blurry BTA with a nice purple base. BTAs tend to lose a lot of their color when they expand. Well, they don't really lose their color, it just gets spread out so it is not as intense.

Nice ty that's what I was figuring he's been spreed out all day he picked a spot right in front of the powerhead his mouth is open a bit but hopefully a couple more days it will close

It could be a Magnifica or BTA. Take a better picture of the mouth. This will help differentiate between the two.

My buddy had two with the purple base. He climbed back up to the same rock again by the time I got home and most of the tips bubbled up besides a couple that looked like they where hurt from the filter. Also does anyone know if anemones can kill aptasias I believe there in the same family but my buddy also gave me a couple of pieces of his live rock and on the one that the bta keeps going on was an aptasia and after the bta pretty much sat on it then moved it was just a brown string no more aptasia lol

Well my buddy is looking good so far he has been eating everyday and looking awesome he is a little mad in this pic because I had to move his rock to treat a aptasia
One question about a couple hours after he eats he will go limp and shoot out a bunch of whitish brown stuff do there digestive tracks work that fast ?

don't feed daily. At most 2 times a week or every 3rd days, small amount. Pencil eraser size. Anemone are mostly water. Their biomass is not much at all.
