I believe their Majano's, I lost a lot of corals from these. My poor Zoa & Paly garden in my old nano got hit hard by these stinging and even killing some colonies, because they would just stop opening. I believe Aiptasia-x kills them. I got a file fish for them, their camouflage looking.

Lol yeah not those, sorry. But what you have is what I had. I thought they were harmless too. But soon they where on everything, even the stalks on zoas. I don't know if you could even get a pic of their almost transparent tentacles. I didn't see the tentacles till later, that's when I freaked out.
