it is most likely aptaisa. If it is you should look into removing it. They are bad. If you can post a pic then you can get a positive id.

As stated above it is most likely aptasia. It will spread quickly. My peppermint shrimp cleared out all my aptasia but 3 big ones(they like the small ones). I am getting some "joes juice" for the big ones
