David Muirhead Probably in the family Aliciidae,which has a number of undescribed species or currently undergoing taxonomic review.Those that are commonly seen by divers in South Australia are very attractive especially when in active feeding mode.They are also able to glide or 'crawl' up and down sea grass blades quite rapidly in context of anemones generally (which are mostly either stationary once settled or very slow moving except for those that deliberately detach and drift with the tides and currents.

Flinders Island (Inv.Gp SA) coastal scene circa 1990 (old slide scan)
Paradoxical Paradise Explained:The Southern Ocean has the HIGHEST WAVE ENERGY of all our oceans,but this image is of lee (NE) shore of Flinders Is.,where swell is barely perceptible on calm days and horizontal viz remains at worst tolerable,often remaining very good eg 15-25m,even in the mostly SW’ly gale-force winter storms.Get a life,get south.
