TOO MANY anemones

i have one medium sized condy and saw that one of my rocks had a condy growing on it. very small. 3 months later the baby condy is very visible and that same rock now has 4 more little condys on it.
will this effect my tank with that many in my tank. how did they grow there? i have had the rock for a year and the condy never was on it.
right now i am having cyno issues . might they be the cause of it ??
maybe overstocked on them? any suggestions of how to get rid of them?
i really only want one.. i also have a carpet anemone.

no, they anemone are not the cause of cyano. I am suspecting though, that what you are seeing are not baby condy anemone but aiptaisia.

I agree with Hara, probably aiptaisa. Are they kinda clear to brownish in color foot and all?
