Does it look like a tiny anenome? it looks tome like aiptasia something you dont want in the tank. :-(

They spread and like to sting corals.....

But thats just my view, it could be something else....

It's bad. You should kill it now before it spreads. You can inject it in it;s mouth with aipstasia X which comes witha syringe or you can inject it with kalkwasser mixed with some water til its yougurt consistency. Ypu gotta inject right int he mouth though, covering it or putting it around it won't kill it.

Break it off and it will spread. they are nasty little buggers. Thats why you have to get it in the mouth to make sure it doesnt spread.

i was thinking about taking the rock out of the tank and breaking off the corner of the rock, not just pulling it off. still not good enough? because quite frankly i dont know where the mouth is, but i do know how to break a rock.

I wouldn't waste the rock by doing that. I would rather kill everything on the rock by rinsing it in freshwater, than break the rock. You might even be able to kill it by just leave that corner of the rock, run under hot sink water for half an hour.
