What paras do they need, are they going to cause me problems? They seem to be doing well at the moment... Is this good or bad?

So you didnt know they were there before? You didnt put them there? Im confused. I believe they need cooler temps, or maybe i just heard they can withstand cooler temps. I would google it. Or maybe someone with experience with that will chime in.

That looks like Aptasia, a pest anemone.

Seems like aptasia, though I did have a tiny jelly for a few months in one of my tanks a long time ago. He swam around quite a bit before the overflow or something got him. Started out the size of a pen head and got about dime sized.

The tank is about 4weeks old the rock I have had in there about 2 weeks and I have just noticed them on the rock when I was looking at my clown and blue tang last night
