    I'd call it a zoo. The disk is too big and tentacles too short to be an aiptasia.

    well the disc is almost clear and when touched it closes in about 2-3 seconds which makes me think it may be aptasia...

    It's possible, there are many different kinds of aips. Zoos can snap shut too though.

    Well, usually zoos have a bigger disk and shorter tentacles. Oh, and often the "stem" is shorter.
