Possible Pest Anemone?

So I bought a couple a few days ago and this morning I noticed of what appears to be some type of anemone on the same rocks that the leathers are on. Is this anemone a potential threat or harmless?

Agree with majano, not necessarily a pest though, ime they don't reproduce any where near the rate aiptasia do and won't over run your tank.

Manjanos can over run a tank. Happened to me years ago. They are very persistent and burn other corals they touch. Aptasia and manjanos should be killed when you spot them IMO.

Well I don't have Kalkwasser to inject it so I just got rid of it with a tweezer. Is that enough or did release spores or something?

You usually have to pretty much burn them to the ground. Leaving even a tiny piece will just produce another anemone. There are no spores, but they can reproduce from just a tiny bit of tissue being left.
