Aiptasia! Peppermint shrimp will eat it. You can try injecting boiling water/lemon juice/apitasia-x into it. Aiptasia-x worked great for me.

I had some super big ones in a tank i was maintaining. I couldn't see them to kalk them because their was no access from the front of the tank, so I put 6 peppermint shrimp in the tank and a few days later, every one was gone. There were probably around 30 decent sized aptasia.
