for 1, it will sting your corals

2, it will spread all over your tank, like a bad case of evil algae. google it and you will see why there're products/methods out there to eradicate it.

That is an anemone, but I don't see that as aiptasia or majano. Is it moving?

Actually aiptasia can move. I have seen it many times before I eradicated the population in my tank.

Well, that guy is an aiptasia. I had to do some searching, never seen one that looked like that. I'd murder him off.

Can you get a profile pic of the anemone? Sometimes easier to ID aiptasia from the side.

Yeah never seen one like that either. Tentacles look to short and stubby to be one. Do you have reference for where you found ID of one like this? I'm curious.
