Feather dusters is my best guess of what it could also be not having seen a pic.

I got a few peppermint shrimp when I inherited a bad 55gal a long time ago. 1 of the 3 shrimp ate them all.

I decided to pull the LR out it was on....no other livestock was on it. BUT...another showed up on my hammer coral skeleton. It was very little. Took some advice and filled it with some super glue. BYE BYE

It will cause localized acidity, so if it's right in the middle of your zoas it might be bad, but anything like Joe's Juice will do the same. Mine disappeared completely in 2 days.
I did the same and my aptasia was in the middle of my zoa colony. I think I missed him but the little cloud of lemon juice got him. my zoas were completely uneffected
