It looks like aiptasia to me. Kill them while there are only two, they get out of hand very quickly. I use aiptasia x, it seems to work.

I would not buy an animal to deal with them. There are quite a few different ones that "can" eat aiptasia, but that does not mean that they will. Buying something that you don't really like or want is never a good idea. I have done it and regret it. Aiptasia x is what I use, just make sure you follow the instructions. I have heard good things about kalkwaser paste also. Don't try to remove them manually they will break up and spread all over the place. And try to deal with them sooner rather than later so they don't multiply. Good luck.

I turn off the flow in the tank when I use aiptasia x, it becomes harmless in a few minutes after that I turn the flow back on. I have had no damage to surrounding corals, After I turn the flow back on my anemones will grab some of the inert aiptasia x and eat it, they have no damage either. Also I have seen my fish eat it and they have no adverse effects. I an not saying that the shrimp don't work, you just can't ever tell what an animal will or will not feel like eating. Just my 2Ę
