    This has been growing a piece of LR I purchased about 2 months ago. Seems to me that it's a Zoanthid, but I can't find any similar pictures like it. Not sure if a Pest or just a Hitchhiker. Thanks in Advance everyone!


    Tried to get as good of a Shot as possible with Cell Phone. The tips of the feelers are Phosphorescent in Green.

    Ya it is kind of sad that those can spread like wildfire and take over a tank in a short amount of time, because they do have beautiful coloring

    Boiling water may do the trick but honestly if it's just the one I'd pull it off by hand. Unlike Aiptasia anemones that will spread like wildfire if even just a piece is left, Majano anemones have a hard pedal disc that you should be able to get under the edge of and peel it right off.

    Lemon juice is also an option.

    I think I will just have to manually remove it.

    One last question: do you guys see the small red leafy macroalgae in the pic that is just above the Majano? Wondering if that is a bad type of algae
