Mojano or Majono anemone?

Got this hitchhiker with some zoanthids I purchased and it has split, can anyone verify that it is an Mojano anemone. I have tried to do some research on the web about it but the pics I find don't look anything like this. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Looks like you got some very nice zooanthids and a very cool looking majano. They are like aiptasia on steroids, best to get rid of them now. Repeated kalk injections should help.

Thanks about the zoo's, I was afraid you'd say that about the anemone, ok, was hoping the peppermint shrimp would take care of it, but I can't find him anywhere now :/ Thanks!

Peppermints will not eat majano anenomes, if fact nothing will, that wont munch your corals too. Kalk injections. I would nip it in the bud fast. I am still battling them. Kalk works, its just that I always miss some.

Greetings.

If you don't have kalk at the moment, you can also use baking soda if you have it already in your house.

OK, how much kalk and or baking soda should I add to the tank? Will it hurt the other inhabitants?

I guess just grabbing them with a tongs or with your hands doesn't work or is out of the question?

I don't have kalk now but I'll pick some up tomorrow for sure. Thanks!

You need to get a syrenge and mix up kalk in scalding hot water to almost a paste like consistancy then inject it.

So we dose directly on the mojano while it's in the tank, right?

Ok, woke up this morning, one of them is gone, don't know if it moved or what, it is completely gone, the other is still on the maiden's hair rock, but is all shreveled up, like it needs food, which isn't going to be happening, is this normal for Mojano anemone's?
