Why does an anemone have knees?

New additions to my aquarium:

Mussel (1/2 inch) and anemone.

There is a small jellyfish, the clinging jellyfish, that has those "knees" on the tentacles; sticky pads there enable it to hold onto rocks and seaweed. I can't find a kneed anemone, though.

Otherwise, looking at the column, it looks like a small orange-striped green anemone, Diadumene lineata.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
