When I picked up this colony of pink zoanthids, I spotted this guy kind of scrunched up and faded, thought he was a ricordia and that I was getting a bonus on the piece. Now that I've got it home and checking it out more closely, I see that it is an anemone. Any thoughts on what kind, whether it can stay or if it should go? It seems to be pretty aggressive. I accidentally banged one of my SPS corals a couple days ago which has really thin branches. I picked up a small tip that had broken off and tossed it towards the sand, it drifted over and barely touched this guy, who then quickly sucked it in, held it for awhile, and then spit it back out completely devoid of the SPS flesh and polyps that had been on it just moments before. Anyway, appreciate any input on what it is and what to do with it:

I'll just have to figure out what exactly I'm going to do with him. I already have 2 RBTA's in my 120, one that is getting rather large and I'm thinking of selling, as I'm trying to make room for SPS corals. Ah well, he's only about an inch wide right now, I just hope he doesn't decide to move on me before I decide what to do with him.
