My wife and i were looking and chatting about the tank and it dawned on us that we have owned these guys for 6+ years!

Nice. I give a guess as to the species of the anemone.
The anemone is either M. doreensis ir H. crispa. I lead toward H. crispa due to two reasons, neither of wich is 100%
1. Shorter tentacles and seem numerous more likely H. crispa
2. A. percula natural hose is H. crispa, not M. doreensis
Only you can find out 100% certain by looking at the colum of this anemone.

The column of M. doreensis is most distinc of all the host anemone. It is orange red lower especially foot (pedal disk). Upper part of the clumn is browinsh or white. Verrucae is white rarely colored flat not raised.
Column of H. crispa is think leathery and raised verrucae
