Welcome to Wetpixel Mike. I think this is the branching anemone Lebrunia danae. The pseudotentacle tips are branched & you can see the rounded papillae that carry the stinging cells.

Thanks Leslie -- I have been lurking a little while. I haven't been able to identify that and am returning to the Bahamas in November so it was time to ask for help.

 

Nice to have a finally have a name to associate with the critter.
