It is indeed aiptasia. You can make your own injectable by purchasing Calcium Hydroxide or Mrs. Wages Pickling Lime (grocery store) and mixing with fw or sw (I prefer sw). Half a spoonful of either and a little water creates a creamy-watery liquid easily taken in through a syringe. Inject .05ml (cc), depending on aiptasia size, into the stalk and then release .1ml (cc) onto the tentacles. The mixture can even be heated beforehand to increase potency. Here are two references as to what Calcium Hydroxide looks like (many brands retail this) and Mrs. Wages:
