Is this Aiptasia

I bought some live rock and found a couple of these. I have read that they are a pest and reproduce very quickly. Any help on riding these pest before my tank develops a really bad problem.Click image for larger version

Buy some aiptasia x and kill them with that. If they come back I would suggest getting rid of the live rock.

Make sure you kill it with aptaisia x. If you don't you will piss the bugger off and he will multiply fast. At least that's my experience.
