Do I have aptasia? (pictures)

I think I know what aptasia looks like but I wanted to make sure. I just got live rock and they are all over.

I bought some Stop Aptasia from the LFS and killed two of them just to see if it worked.
I'll kill the rest as soon as the tank is done cycling.

is that LR.com rock? I thought that that's what I had all over my rock.. I knew what they were but hoping they weren't..... I hate killing animals.. especially after reading about anemones in this book I have, it reads that some can live to be centuries old. that sucks that I have to kill a poor little animal! But I know the consequence, so I guess I have to..

so to get rid of these things u have to buy something like joe's juice or something..I've read that peppermint shrimp is a cold water shrimp and the banded butterfly fish gets too big and is too aggressive.. btw.. ur tank looks like mine with all the aptasia..
