It's a majano anemone. Can become pests. Will need to have something like boiling water/lemon juice into its mouth or use a product like joe's juice/aiptasia-x to kill it as they are glass anemeone. Any damage to the anemone itself will cause it to shatter rather than break, with all the little pieces becoming new anemone.

Doubtful. The specific peppermints that consume aiptasia is one of the 6 that fall under the title of peppermint shrimp. I've tried and had no help with their consumption of glass anemone out of any of the species of peppermint.

Ate you talking about the one down in the rock? Or the one on the limb?

Yes its a majano anemone in my opinion the best way to remove it is to remove the rock its on and cut/chip the rock right under the anemone with a bone cutter

I have done the feeding method it sometimes works sometimes it just gets it agitated

Out of probably 30 times i tried with a peppermint shrimp it only worked once and it was for aptesia not majano i would also have to remove corals that it would bother so really not a good option
