    Looks like a majano anemone(s). Or are you referring to the zoanthids??

    Agree with xystic, pest anemone..probably a majano. There are a couple of products to treat these guys (Aiptasia X , F Aiptasia....yep that's really the name). There are other ways to0. I would try to get rid of it ASAP as they can proliferate and be a nuisance.

    Needle and syringe and inject with pure fresh squeezed lemon. With Aptasia x they seem to come back eventually for me.

    I think technique is important with Aptasia X for sure. If I would let the aiptasia wrap its tentacles around the needle (they will do that if you just allow a few drops to come out as your approach the aiptasia) and then cover the sucker completely they didn't come back for me.

    I did everything by the book and just as you said. Maybe I got a bad bottle but it just didnt work for me. So I wont be spending my money on that product especially since lemons are cheaper.

    Looks like Oxides but hard to tell if not in person. Google Oxide zoas and see if it looks the same.
