Need help with ID

Hi guys. First Post here and a beginner with marine tanks. I just got this nem from a LFS. They can't tell me what type of NEM is this. Anyone have any idea?

It's a long tentacle anemone. Very bleached.

Sorry, that's not entirely true. It's pretty bleached but I've seen far worse that have recovered.

Oh no I didn't know its bleached. Thought that was its color. What are the chances of survival ?

It looks like it might turn green over time. That'll likely be it's natural color. And if your tank is well established, very healthy, and has stable parameters it has a decent chance of recovering.

It need a think sand bed.
Your tank look like it have fresh water decoration. That piece of drift wood and those lava rocks do not belong in salt water tank.
